The countdown to transpose the revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) has started!

Member States have until March 2020 to translate into national law all the new requirements from the EU energy efficiency legislation affecting buildings. To discuss changes and challenges, but also opportunities, EuroACE (the European Alliance of Companies for Energy Efficiency in Buildings) has written a Guide on the topic.

After several weeks of consultations with stakeholders, including at national level, in the summer 2018, EuroACE is now presenting the final version of its Guide to EPBD Implementation in a series of webinars in cooperation with BUILD UP.


The third webinar of the series took place on 13th February and discussed the topic of ‘Smart and Technology Equipped Buildings – new features from the amended EPBD’.


The webinar was moderated by Hélène SIBILEAU, Senior EU Affairs Manager, who also introduced a overview of EuroACE Guide to EPBD Implementation.

The presentation of EuroACE Guide to EPBD Implementation, focusing on the chapter 5 ‘Smart & Technology-Equipped Buildings’, was given by Stephan KOLB, Danfoss, EuroACE member.
