Upgrade Data Collection Template

The upgrade template is designed to facilitate the transfer of information on completed whole house retrofits from contractors to Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® or other whole house programs.

The upgrade template includes HPXML data elements to describe the baseline building (e.g., the pre-upgrade condition of the home, with proposed measures) with a completed work scope (e.g., description of installed measures, with modeled or predicted energy savings).

Programs that wish to use the template, may download the Data Selection Tool or visit the HPXML online data dictionary for information on the required data fields. Software developers should go to the HPXML Validator to test files for compliance with the template's requirements.
