Working hand in hand to correctly implement the EU energy efficiency in buildings legal requirements. Since July 1st, users of the building professionals’ platform REDFORMAS who send an online request for up to six free construction and rehabilitation cost estimations benefit from ENACE’s database of accredited energy performance assessors and energy efficiency certifiers. Three forms of collaboration ensure the interoperability of both entities’ service databases while respecting user data: firstly, the portals redformas.es and enace.org have been interlinked. Secondly, users seeking cost estimations for construction or renovation works are being sent automatically generated confirmation e-mails informing them about energy certification requirements and containing a link to the database of ENACE-accredited energy certifiers. Finally, building professionals who are part of the REDFORMAS network have been invited to join in ENACE’s activities and community of energy performance in building professionals.
