REHVA monitoring on the implementation of the EPBD
EPBD Guidance Documents
DG Energy has started the development of EPBD Guidance Documents after the publication of the revised directive. The aim of the documents is to help national ministries and policy makers to implement the revised EPBD and define common interpretation of the revised and new paragraphs of the Directive. Therefore, DG Energy run a consultative process with the Member States’ representatives in the EPBD group while taking also stakeholders’ opinion into consideration.
REHVA Office collected comments and recommendation to the informal draft guidance documents and sent the compiled inputs of REHVA Member Associations and TRC experts to DG Energy. Many REHVA experts sent valuable inputs and the comments were well-received by DG Energy that included many aspects in the documents discussed with Member States. REHVA submitted comments to the following documents:
1. Annex I - energy performance calculation;
2. Articles 2 and 8 - TBS;
3. Article 2a - Long Term Renovation Strategies;
4. Articles 8, 14 and 15 - Self-regulating devices and BACS;
5. Articles 14 and 15 – Inspections.
REHVA collected also best practices and national level policy information and shared with DG Energy relevant REHVA Guidebooks (e.g. Building Commissioning, Fire Safety in Buildings) as well as technical papers from the REHVA Journal. REHVA also promoted the best-practice AMEV guide on Technical monitoring of buildings developed by the QUANTUM project.
