Smart Readiness Indicator (GEN – 1016.00)

11 April 2019

2 min read

GEN – 1016.00. On 26 March, the Commission hosted the first stakeholder meeting for the second phase of the development of the Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI). The meeting aimed at presenting stakeholders with an overview of the previous study focused on the calculation methodology, and to present how the study team aims to structure this study on the practical implementation.

Summary (provided by Orgalim)

During the meeting, the study team developing the calculation methodology presented a main overview of the main outcomes, and how they envision implementing the SRI. It appears that the study team and the Commission are favouring developing two separate types of SRI:

Simplified online quick-scan

A simple self-assessment, which building occupants could perform, where they tick off boxes on a checklist from different services already present in their building. This approach is geared especially towards residential building occupants or owners.

Expert SRI assessment

This would require an external party to come to the building to assess the different services present in the building and calculate the score. This analysis would be more detailed and is geared mainly towards non-residential buildings.

One key request from stakeholders is that the Smart Readiness also provides personalised recommendations to renovate the building to make it smarter. However, the study team will need to assess how to balance end-users’ expectations with what is feasible. To this purpose, the study team held, after the public sessions, two parallel sessions on calculation methodology of the SRI (group mainly formed by manufacturers) and another on the SRI value proposition and implementation, on how to design the most effective SRI for consumers (formed mainly by consumer groups and installers).

Comment

As indicated in August 2018 (GEN – 942.00), it is not yet clear if and which Member States will implement the optional SRI in their transposition of the revised EPBD by February/March 2020. Because the 2nd phase of the SRI study is expected to end in June 2020, it is possible that the SRI would not be introduced in the national transpositions of the revised EPBD.

Recommended Actions

Manufacturers are recommended to consider if the SRI would be useful when positioning their products on the market. They may consider joining the next stakeholder meeting scheduled for 9 October.
