The Energy performance of buildings directive (EPBD) is, together with the Energy efficiency directive, the main legislative instruments to promote the energy performance of buildings and to boost renovation within the EU.
The EPBD (2010/31/EU) has been in force since 2010 and helps consumers to make informed choices allowing them to save both energy and money.

Based on Commission proposals published in November 2016, the Clean energy for all Europeans package consists of eight legislative acts. After political agreement by the Council and the European Parliament in 2018 and early 2019, these acts are expected to enter into force by summer 2019, although EU countries have 1-2 years to transpose the new directives into national law.

Answering the need of clarification of the Member States, the EU commission released a document with the recommendation for implementing the amended EPBD into national operative laws.
Full transposition and effective implementation of the amended EPBD is fundamental to support the achievement of 2030 energy efficiency targets and to put the Union on track for the full decarbonisation of national building stocks by 2050.

The purpose of this application note is to define a generic methodology based on practical experience and existing standards to make robust, ex-ante assessments of energy conservation measures (ECM) in buildings. The focus is on the potential energy and cost savings of medium-sized ECMs with a typical incremental investment cost of between €100k and €1 million. Most of the specified methodologies can also be applied to ECMs in other fields, such as at industrial sites.

Two-thirds (65%) of the European building stock was built before 1980: about 97% of the EU’s buildings must be upgraded to achieve the 2050 decarbonisation goal, but only 0.4-1.2% are renovated each year.

The session will address the role and contribution of energy efficient building renovation in Europe’s energy future, with different time perspectives:
- Implementation of the amended Energy Performance of Buildings Directive after 2020;
- Opportunities to invest more and industrialise the sector in order to accelerate actions by 2030;

BERTIM develops a prefabricated solution which provides the opportunity to renovate improving energy performance, air quality, aesthetics, comfort, and property value at the same time, while ensuring low intrusiveness during renovation works.
The manufacturing of the solution is included in a holistic methodology for the renovation project process, from data collecting to installation.

Position paper Annex 67
Annex 67 “Energy Flexible Buildings”, is a collaborative project supported by the Energy in Buildings and Communities program of the International Energy Agency. It aims to find a common definition, assessment methodology and to evaluate the flexibility potential of different building typologies and case studies in order to provide a common framework for the future implementation of energy flexibility in buildings.
