|Project Name||TABULA - Typology Approach for Building Stock Energy Assessment|
|Implementation period:||1.05.2009 - 30.04.2012|
IWU - Institut Wohnen und Umwelt - Germany
TABULA aimed to create a harmonised structure for European building typologies. Residential buildings were the focus, but activities extended beyond them.
Each national typology was a set of model residential buildings with characteristic energy related properties. Each of these represent a certain construction period in the country and a specific building size. Furthermore, the number of buildings and apartments which they represent, and the overall floor areas, were identified. The development and utilisation of a webtool, serving as a data source for scenario analyses, was the other key outcome.
The action addressed experts working on scenario analyses, as well as policy makers, at regional, national or EU level. Energy consultants can also use the typologies for initial advice.
A common structure for building typologies developed on the basis of already existing national typologies of residential buildings and heat supply systems. The structure considers the different national construction types.
