building energy performance

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

From January 2021 all new construction in the EU must achieve the nearly-zero energy buildings standard, and existing buildings will have to be renovated at a faster rate. While the carbon emissions from buildings in operation should be reduced, their actual energy consumption relate to a more complex combination of factors.

The increasing integration of decentralized electricity production from renewable energy sources is often suggested as a key technology striving towards a sustainable energy system, mitigating fuel poverty and climate change. In many countries, the growing share of renewable energy sources (RES) goes in parallel with the extensive electrification of demand, e.g. replacement of traditional cars with electrical vehicles or displacement of fossil fuel heating systems, such as gas or oil boilers, with energy efficient heat pump.
