Focusing on energy consumption and indoor thermal climate the following topics have been investigated: • Light and Heavy floor heating system • Insulation thickness in the floor construction • Linear thermal transmittance at foundation/floor construction • Control of the floor heating system Supply temperature Supply temperature controlled by the outdoor temperature Night lowering of the room temperature Start/stop difference (Dead band) • Room temperature and energy consumption • Floor coverings

ASIEPI stands for 'Assessment and Improvement of the EPBD Impact (for new buildings and building renovation)'. The project addresses 6 technical issues:EPBD requires Member States to define building energy performance requirements... but did the Member States take this opportunity to strengthen their existing legislation? Member States are free to define their calculation methods and their requirements... Is it therefore possible to compare requirements across Europe? If yes, are the requirements from one country more severe than

The implementation of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) has caused in most of the EU Member States more severe requirements for the energy demand of buildings. In order to meet these requirements, not only buildings components with better U-values and more efficient building systems have to be used, also the ventilation losses have to be reduced. A contribution to this necessary reduction is the improvement of the building envelope airtightness, mainly the airtightness of building components and joints.

The Effinergie association was created in May 2006 to promote low energy buildings in France. The initiative was taken by regional authorities, and particularly the Alsace, Franche-Comté, Languedoc-Roussillon and Rhône-Alpes regions. The objectives are to combine and optimize implementation of regional approaches, and to federate construction professionals and local communities.
