Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD)

Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD)

The Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government (DHPLG) are the policy lead on this Directive. DCCAE has responsibility for Article 2a 'Long Term Renovation Strategy' and for the articles relating to inspection schemes for heating and air conditioning systems.

The Directive requires that EU Member States strengthen their building regulations (DHPLG) and introduce energy performance certification of buildings.

Member States are required to;

  • introduce long term building renovation strategies, with a clear vision for the decarbonisation of buildings by 2050,
  • encourage the use of information communication and smart technologies to ensure the efficient operation of buildings,
  • introduce building automation and control (BAC) systems as an alternative to physical inspections,
  • encourage the roll-out of the required infrastructure for e-mobility,
  • introduce a "smartness indicator",
  • strengthen the links between public funding for building renovation and energy performance certificates and
  • incentivise tackling energy poverty through building renovation.
