Promoting healthy and energy efficient buildings in the European Union: National implementation of related requirements of the Energy Performance Buildings Directive (2010/31/EU)

 

EU Member States have been developing policies and measures to generally reduce the actual energy use of their buildings. Member States are called to properly implement and enforce the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive recast (2010/31/EU) without compromising the comfort, health and productivity of their occupants.

 

The objective of this report is three-fold: (a) to present the outcome of the review carried out concerning the implementation status by the EU MS of provisions relating to ventilation, indoor air quality and energy performance criteria and requirements; (b) assess whether the current implementation status can ensure avoiding possible negative effects on the comfort, health and productivity conditions of the buildings‟ occupants in EU; (c) formulating policy and technical related recommendations to enable the effective implementation of healthy and energy efficient buildings in the EU.

 

This work was performed in the context of Task 13.3 of the Administrative Arrangement TSSEED between DG ENER and JRC no. ENER/C3/2014-554/SI2.693948 (2015-2017) with the aim to directly inform the review process of the EU energy efficiency legislation in 2016.
