The Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development ("Bundesinstitut für Bau-, Stadt- und Raumforschung - BBSR") advises the Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development ("Bundesministerium für Verkehr, Bau und Stadtentwicklung - BMVBS") on technical and scientific questions of energy saving and continuously takes part in the amendment of standards concerning the energy saving. The new Info Portal provides information and material concerning the Energy Saving Act and the Energy Saving Ordinance. It is above all aimed at energy consultants, engineers, architects, and craftsmen that deal with the matter – but also at affected citizens that are interested in more detailed information.

The portal is structured into the following sections:

  • Energy Saving Act (EnEG)
  • Energy Saving Ordinance
  • Heating Cost Ordinance
  • Europe
  • Archive for expired norms
