The logbook data quest. Setting up indicators and other requirements for a renovation passport.
The new iBRoad report defines the scope and use of a buildings renovation logbook, setting the boundaries about which data can be accessed and used to design renovation plans while protecting confidentiality at the same time.
The EU-funded iBRoad project works on developing an Individual Building Renovation Roadmap for single-family houses. This tool provides a customised renovation plan over a long-term period of time (10-20 years).
The renovation roadmap is combined with a building logbook, a repository where all the building’s related information can be stored and continuously updated. The type of information stored in the logbook and its functionalities can evolve over time and could range from energy production and consumption, to equipment maintenance, as well as insurance, property plans and obligations, energy bills, smart meter data and links to available financing options for renovation projects (e.g. green loans, incentives, tax credits).
This report provides guidance on setting up a logbook supporting the implementation of an Individual Building Renovation Roadmap addressing the following aspects essential for the success of the iBRoad concept: (i) what data should be sought and why should it be collected; (ii) which stakeholders could provide or benefit from accessing that information; (iii) where is the information stored, who owns the data and how could it be accessed and (iv) data availability and protection.

The analysis was done within the framework of the H2020 project iBRoad.
