This workshop held in Brussels is the third of a series of four workshops co-organised by AIVC and ASIEPI (see ASIEPI WORKSHOPS for more information). It has included a series of well structured country presentations, the view of various European associations, synthesis presentations and a panel discussion. More specifically, the workshop has focused on the following issues :
- Evaluation of impact of national EPBD implementation on severity of requirements
- Overview to what extent the implementation of the EPBD by the individual MS did result in more severe requirements in terms of energy efficiency and indoor climate specifications AND whether there is/has been a widening of the type of requirements (other buildings, more global requirements, indoor climate requirements, …)
- Evaluation of handling of compliance and control in the different member states
- Overview about the direct and indirect market mechanisms contributing to respect of the regulations for new and existing buildings
Based on a collection of information from the ASIEPI partners, pros and cons of the different approaches has been presented. This evaluation could be a major reference for the EC and MS when evaluating possibilities (and barriers) for obtaining better compliance with regulations.
