The first step in preparing an Annex is for each country to complete a Technology Readiness Level Assessment (TRLA). However, since the subject of energy epidemiology cannot easily be compared to the development of a new technology we decided to develop and conduct a survey that addresses the current situation in each country.
The survey aimed to establish the ‘state of play’ in countries that may be interested in participating in this Annex. It was developed as an alternative to the conventional Technology Readiness Level (TRL) assessment which has proven difficult to adapt for the subject of this annex.
The questionnaire seeks information from each country in relation to:
A. National building stock models
B. Availability of energy and buildings data
C. Field trials and demonstration projects (testing new designs and products)
D. Sub-group surveys (gathering data and information from existing buildings)
The survey is still open and if you are interested in filling out the questionnaire, please follow the link below. The contributions from the questionnaire will be used to prepare the Annex Proposal to the EBC Executive Committee.
