An Introduction to the Home Performance Index (HPI)
Ireland's first national certification for quality and sustainable residential development
Residential development will be the key growth area in the construction industry over the next five years. There will be considerable government investment, with quality and sustainability as one of the key requirements. A number of large Public Private Partnership residential projects will be tendered over the coming year and developers who are looking to get an edge on their competitors are considering the Home Performance Index (HPI) as the clearest way of meeting quality requirements.
Furthermore, banks and other financial institutions are increasingly using certification schemes such as the HPI to assess the quantitative relationships between building performance and loan performance. In this context, the Home Performance Index is likely to be used as a key building performance indicator as part of the development of a green mortgage product.
The HPI is supported by the EPA and complements existing schemes in the commercial sector such as LEED.
