The energy needed in buildings currently constitutes a large share of the total energy demanded in Europe. At the same time, remarkable potentials for saving energy and CO2 emissions in the building sector have been detected. To initiate the implementation of energy saving measures in buildings energy performance certificates (EPC) have been developed and implemented in the EU.
e-think together with TU Wien is currently starting an international research project on how to improve the existing EPC schemes. This includes the efficient use of building related data in EPC databases. In this context we search for a research assistant to support the development of new methods in this field and the implementation and execution of the project. The position should be started in September 2019.
