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.

The H2020 project X-tendo, standing for ‘eXTENDing the energy performance assessment and certification schemes via a mOdular approach’, will support public authorities and implementing agencies in the transition towards improved compliance, reliability, usability and convergence of next-generation energy performance assessment and certification.

The DGNB assesses buildings and urban districts which demonstrate an outstanding commitment to meeting sustainability objectives. The sustainability concept of the DGNB System is broadly based and goes beyond the well-known three-pillar model. The DGNB System covers all of the key aspects of sustainable building: environmental, economic, sociocultural and functional aspects, technology, processes and site. The first four quality sections have equal weight in the assessment.

  In a first step, the DGNB criteria for new buildings will be adapted to local peculiarities in Spain and tested in a pilot phase.   This adaptation should be completed by mid-2020. Other forms of certification of the DGNB, for example in the field of renovation, for buildings in use or for urban districts, will be available in Spain in the future as well.

Energy efficiency is "an energy source in its own right". By 2030 more energy will be saved than the amount of oil-based energy then, thus energy efficiency is expected to actually become the “first fuel”.

The growth of global urban population drives unprecedented construction, resulting in embodied carbon emissions from new buildings alone to excess of 100 gigatons by 2060. If all construction activity, including infrastructure and renovations, are included, the global construction activity carbon until 2060 is set to exceed 230 gigatons, unless carbon intensity is drastically cut.
