Very low energy buildings

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 EU, in light of the 2030 and 2050 energy and climate goals, has adopted an ambitious vision for the energy performance of its buildings among other measures. This is because the building sector still represents about 40% of energy consumption in the EU with the largest cost-effective savings potential. However, in order to meet this vision, the construction sector must be ready to deliver high-performance retrofits and nearly zero energy buildings. As in every field, this would require a number of qualified professionals and building workers.
