Home Performance Certificate (BPI-2101)

BPI-2101-S-2013 Standard Requirements for a Certificate of Completion for Residential Energy Efficiency Upgrades (“Home Performance Certificate”) is a BPI standard that identifies a subset of HPXML data elements for certificates that document the completion of an energy efficiency project, either whole-house or individual measures (See Home Performance Certificate).

The Home Performance Certificate standard dataset is the most complex use case because it contains each of the following Building nodes.

  • Pre-upgrade
  • Proposed workscope
  • Post-upgrade

Two Project nodes are included as well that describe the proposed project and the completed project. It can be thought of as a combination of the Audit and Upgrade use cases.

Finally, Consumption and Utility nodes are also included to provide a utility billing history.

See the examples/bpi2101.xml document for more details on what data elements are included.
