Where is the SRI available as an App?

There is no specific standalone mobile app dedicated solely to the Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI)


Is there an association about SRI or a law to read up on?

There is no specific association dedicated solely to the Smart Readiness Indicator (SRI). However, the SRI is a concept and framework developed by the European Union (EU) as part of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). The EPBD sets the legal framework and requirements for energy performance and efficiency in buildings across EU member states.

 To read up on the SRI, you can refer to the official documents and legal texts related to the EPBD. You can also find relevant information on the websites of the European Commission, the EU’s Directorate-General for Energy, or national authorities responsible for implementing the EPBD in your country.

How/where do I learn more about the SRI?
  • European Union resources: official EU websites, such as the European Commission’s Energy Efficiency webpage or the EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) webpage. These platforms often provide detailed information, guidelines, and official documents related to the SRI.
  • National Energy Agencies: they may provide country-specific information, implementation guidelines, and resources related to the SRI.
  • Research papers and publications: from reputable sources that delve into the SRI concept, methodology and its applications.
  • Industry organisations and associations: related to energy efficiency, sustainable buildings, and smart technologies. They may offer guides, case studies, and best practices regarding the SRI.
  • Workshops and webinars: stay updated on workshops, seminars, conferences, or training sessions organized by relevant industry experts, professional associations, or research institutions.
