Better Indoor Climate With Less Energy: European Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD)
MetadataShow full item record
The European Commission's Action Plan on Energy Efficiency (2000) indicated the need for specific measures in the building sector. In response, the European Commission (EC) published the proposed Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings (EPBD) in May 2001. The European Parliament and Council accepted the text, and it was published in the EU Official Journal in January 2003, at which time the Directive became a European Law. The objective of the EPBD is to promote the improvement of the energy performance of buildings, taking into account outdoor climatic and local conditions, as well as indoor climate requirements. The main objective is to achieve better indoor climate with less energy.
