Energy efficiency in buildings by means of energy certification

Share this Post:

As of June 1st, 2013, it has become mandatory in Spain to do an energy certificate for buildings which will be at the disposal of buyers of buildings and also for landlords that want to rent a flat for a time longer than four months.

This certificate checks the energy efficiency of buildings in terms of energy consumption and CO2 emissions. This qualification is demonstrated by means of a label with a letter rating in which an ¨A¨ is the best case and ¨G¨ the worst.

This legislation will create a source of employment and an opportunity for architects or engineers that want to develop new busines areas.
