The following text summarizes the provisions of the EPBD recast text regarding calculating and achieving cost-optimal requirements:Methodology to calculate cost-optimal levelsThe Commission shall have established by June 2011 a comparative methodology framework for calculating cost-optimal levels of minimum energy performance requirements for buildings and building elements (e.g. the roof of a building). The comparative methodology framework shall require Member States to:
