9 ways to make the EPBD more effective

BPIE analysis that would make the EPBD more effective in improving the energy performance of European buildings, while enabling Member States to develop and implement ambitious policies.

The European Commission announced a revised European Performance of Buildings Directive to be part of the Energy Efficiency Package, expected in autumn 2016. This provides an opportunity to evolve and strengthen requirements which would result in higher energy savings and reduced CO2 emissions from the sector. This paper summarises recommendations based on earlier BPIE analysis that would make the EPBD more effective in improving the energy performance of European buildings, while enabling Member States to develop and implement ambitious policies.
