Discussion of the cost optimality methodology and its challenges within the recast EPBD

Share this Post:
The Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE) has published a document that discusses the methodology and the challenges of the cost optimality of requirements within the recast Energy Performance of Building Directive. It summarises the procedure of the cost-optimal methodology as defined in the EPBD recast and discusses several items that may be a challenge for the European Member States during the process such as energy price forecast, private and social perspectives and CO2 emissions as possible additional indicator.
