Home Performance XML, or HPXML, provides a data dictionary (BPI-2200) and a standard extensible markup language (XML) protocol (BPI-2100) for transferring data from one software system to another. The data dictionary creates a common “vocabulary” for the residential energy efficiency industry and the data transfer protocol provides a basis for communication between software systems.
