What does the transition towards lowcarbon building stock mean for Europe?   European building stock is responsible for around a third of CO2 emissions, and the EU has set a target of 20 % reduction by 2020 and 60 % by 2030, from a 1990 baseline. Meeting these targets means focusing on decarbonising the power supply and making concerted efforts to reduce energy demand through retrofits of existing stock.

Croatian methodology for calculation of energy performance of buildings is largely based on the first set of CEN EPB standards (ed.2008). As these standards were proved not to be unambiguous enough for direct use, the national calculation methodology was developed in 2011. in the form of so-called Algorithms (Figure 1) by the University of Zagreb. Five Algorithms1 are written as a spreadsheet ready ‘array’ of formulas with the accompanying text describing sources for input parameters and connections with other parts of calculations.

By the end of 2017 NEN decided to update the existing national Energy Performance standards in The Netherlands. The planning was to finalise this work within roughly one year. This short time frame was based on the requirement in the EPBD to report to the Commission by March 2020. The new national method should be operational by 2020. It was estimated that final checking and preparing and distributing reliable software based on this national method should at least take one year.
