The NEN 5128 "Energy performance of dwellings and residential buildings- Determination method" [1] describes a procedure to calculate the energy performance coefficient EPC. The requirements are given in the Dutch Building Decree [2]. The energy performance is expressed as an Energy Performance Characteristic (EPC). In this EPC procedure ventilation and air tightness play an important role. This paper describes the role of ventilation and air tightness in the Energy Performance Standard. Moreover it gives the alternative way of the so called equivalence principle.
