The Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Team developed the HPXML Implementation Guide to help program administrators and software developers integrate HPXML into their operations and products.
HPXML is a set of common definitions, based on Building Performance Institute’s BPI-2100 and BPI-2200 data standards, for the attributes of the systems in a home and the computing language that facilitates the quick and easy transfer of home-related data between different market actors.
Today there is a fragmented, siloed marketplace where exchange of data occurs but with the non-uniform definitions for metrics and lack of two-way feedback systems. With the use of HPXML, we will see the easy exchange of data between and among different market actors.
The following is a recording of a webinar from August 2015. Home Performance with ENERGY STAR hosted a panel on HPXML; the value it can bring to businesses and implementation methods. Interested organizations can use this resource to learn more about HPXML and its potential benefits.
