Does the EPBD require that existing minimum energy performance requirements in Member States have to be made more demanding?

No. If the existing requirements already meet the definitions of Articles 4-6, a Member State does not necessarily have to make them more demanding. Article 4 states that the requirements shall be reviewed at regular intervals (not longer than 5 years) and if necessary be updated in order to reflect technical progress in the building sector.
