ENERFUND project aims to enhance investments in refurbishment of buildings across Europe by developing a tool that rates and scores deep renovation opportunities. The tool is based on a set of parameters such as Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs), number of certified installers, governmental schemes running, quality of heating systems, etc. Find our more about buildings' energy efficiency in the 11 countries already mapped in the tool here https://app.enerfund.eu/
