New report analyses implementation of Energy Performance of Buildings Directive

The Concerted Action EPBD releases its 2016 report "Implementing the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) – Featuring Country Reports." It analyses and compares implementation of the Directive across the 28 EU Member States and Norway.

The report is built in two parts: part A describes the main accomplishments and remaining challenges on a selection of major topics covered by the EPBD, part B provides a detailed overview of implementation in each country.    

“I welcome this report, which demonstrates again the positive effect of the dialogue and exchange of best practices of implementation of regulations between the Member States”  says S.A.Blok, Dutch Minister for Housing and the Central Government Sector, holding the Presidency of the European Union.  

This edition marks the 10th anniversary of building performance requirements in Europe and provides food for thought to the forthcoming Review of the Directive.
