Energy efficiency in EU buildings: share your feedback! Wednesday, 28 October, 2015

AEM Updates 2015Posted by Adv. Lorenc Gordani, PhD Fri, October 30, 2015 16:00:35

The EU is seeking your opinion on its rules for energy efficiency in buildings – and there are just a few days left to send in your views. What do you think of the EU’s Energy Performance of Buildings Directive? Be sure to submit by 31 October 2015.

Under the 2010 Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, energy performance certificates must be included in all advertisements for the sale or rent of buildings, EU countries must establish inspection schemes for heating and air conditioning systems, all new buildings must be nearly-zero energy by the end of 2020, and EU countries must set minimum energy performance requirements for new buildings and renovations.

Buildings account for around 40% of the EU’s energy consumption with older buildings being much less energy-efficient. By improving energy efficiency, the EU could cut its energy consumption by 5-6%.

The European Commission is set to review the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive by 1 January 2017.
