- The EPBD requires Member States to define building energy performance requirements... but did the Member States take this opportunity to strengthen their existing legislation?
- Member States are free to define their calculation methods and their requirements... Is it therefore possible to compare requirements across Europe? If yes, are the requirements from one country more severe than those of neighbouring countries?
- The EPBD gives a list of aspects to consider in the calculation procedures... Practically, how to effectively handle thermal bridges, stimulate good summer comfort conditions and good building and duct airtightness?
- The EPBD should not be a barrier for innovation. Are there legal and technical frameworks to assess the energy performance of new innovative systems not covered by the standard procedures?
- Regulations are only useful if they are respected. How do Member States organise control and compliance?
ASIEPI stands for 'Assessment and Improvement of the EPBD Impact (for new buildings and building renovation)'.
