HPXML Implementation Guide

HPXML Implementation Guide

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.
