EU Energy Council: Decision on the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD)

On 14 May 2018, the EU Council of Ministers adopted the revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD, 2010/31/EU). This is the first legislative proposal from the "Clean Energy for all Europeans" package published by the European Commission in November 2016.

The ZVEI has successfully advocated a high degree of energy efficiency in buildings at European level and supports progress in the regulatory process.

The main measures of the irective are:

  • to create incentives for building renovations;
  • Introduction of an intelligence indicator that measures a building's ability to use new technologies to optimize its operation and adapt to the needs of the consumer; 
  • Simplification of inspections of heating and air conditioning systems;
  • Installation of a charging infrastructure for electric vehicles at the building; 

 

The directive will enter into force 20 days after its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union. Member States will then have 20 months to transpose the directive into national law. 

What is necessary from ZVEI's point of view: 

  • Harmonization, simplification and summary of regulatory law;
  • Strengthening of energy consulting in the building sector; 
  • Exploiting the potential of sector coupling between electricity, heat and transport;
  • Focus not only on new buildings but also on existing, non-residential and public buildings
