Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD)

 


 

 

Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (Directive 2010/31/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 19 May 2010 on the energy performance of buildings - EPBD) was partly designed to meet the 20 % indicative target for energy efficiency improvements under the 2020 climate and energy package.

 

Provisions of the EPBD:

 

- include the requirement for Member States to develop energy performance certificates to be included in all advertisements for the sale or rental of buildings,

feather

Electro-mobility requirements of the Winter Energy Package of November 2016

 

Proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Directive 2010/31/EU on the energy performance of buildings, COM/2016/0765 final - 2016/0381 (COD)

  

 

numbering blue   requirement to introduce recharging points for electric vehicles in the parking spaces of new buildings

 

numbering blue   new non-residential buildings (or those undergoing major renovation) with more than ten parking spaces required to equip one parking space per ten for electro-mobility

 

numbering blue  from 2025 the above rule extended to all non-residential buildings with more than ten parking spaces, including existing buildings

 

numbering blue   all new residential buildings (or those undergoing major renovation) with more than ten parking spaces required to put in place the pre-cabling for electric recharging points

 

 

- establish inspection schemes for heating and air-conditioning systems (or put in place measures with equivalent effect),

 

- set minimum energy performance requirements for new buildings, for the major renovation of buildings and for the replacement or retrofit of building elements; and


- draw up lists of national financial measures to improve the energy efficiency of buildings.

EPBD will continue to apply in the decade 2020 - 2030.

 

On 30 November 2016, the European Commission adopted a ‘Clean energy for all Europeans’ package (known also as the ‘Winter Energy Package’), consisting of eight legislative proposals and other actions to help the EU meet its 2030 energy and climate goals.

 

The above package includes also the Commission proposal for a targeted revision of the EPBD (Proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Directive 2010/31/EU on the energy performance of buildings, COM/2016/0765 final - 2016/0381 (COD)).

 

The said proposal maintains the key features of the existing EPBD, nevertheless, it:

 

- modernises and streamlines some requirements,

 

- introduces binding obligations on electro-mobility requirements in buildings,

 

- introduces a ‘smartness indicator’ that assesses the technological capability of buildings in energy self-production and consumption, and

 

- sets clearer requirements for national databases on energy performance certificates.

 

The revised framework includes the obligation that all new buildings are nearly zero-energy buildings by 2021 (‘nZEB’).

 

The proposal would require Member States to satisfy the general obligation that all new buildings meet minimum energy performance requirements.

 

An obligation would be introduced to provide documentation on the overall energy performance after any technical building systems are installed, replaced or upgraded.

 

More cumbersome and less crucial obligations under the existing EPBD would be removed.
