Lov om fremme af energibesparelser i bygninger

Share this Post:
On 16 June 2005, the Danish Parliament approved a new law on Energy Savings in Buildings. This law will implement the requirements of articles 7, 8, 9 and 10 of the EPBD (certification, inspection & experts). On many points, the new law goes further than the minimum requirements in the directive. It requires regular energy labelling of all public buildings every 5 years, regular energy labelling of all large buildings (more than 1.000 m² gross area) for trade and services as well as large blocks with flats. For building and apartment for sale or rent, the energy labelling will only be valid for 5 years. Energy labelling will include inspection, certification and advising. For new buildings inspection and certification will be used to ensure fulfilment of building codes. All oil boilers will be regular inspected every one or two year and all heating systems will be included in the 15-year inspection, regardless of the size of the boiler.
