Georgian Energy Efficiency Certification for Buildings (GEECB) is a software solution designed specifically for certifying buildings in accordance with the National Calculation Methodology (NCM), Minimum Energy Efficiency Requirements (MEPRs), and the Law of Georgia on Energy Efficiency in Buildings.
When obtaining a building permit, it is essential to ensure compliance with resolution 354, which sets minimum energy performance requirements for buildings (MEPRs). Software simplifies the process by generating a declaration of conformity with resolution 354. Upon completion of the construction, the building requires an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). GEECB software is capable of calculating both the declaration and the EPC.
Calculations are fully compliant with the European directive on the energy performance of buildings (Directive (EU) 2018/844 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 May 2018) and are based on the nationally approved calculation methodology (NCM) that meets the requirements outlined in the Energy Efficiency Directive in Buildings (EPBD) 2018 Annex 1.
This directive mandates that member states describe their calculation methodology in line with the national annexes of ISO 52000-1, 52003-1, 52010-1, 52016-1, and 52018-1, developed under mandate M/480 by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN).
Software harnesses the power of the ibp18599kernel calculation library developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics. This library implements the German version of the EPBD, known as DIN V 18599:2018, enabling accurate calculations of energy needs, energy usage, and primary energy for buildings.
The calculation methodology has been tailored to meet the specific requirements of Georgia's national calculation methodology.
