The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) introduced Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) with the aim to create more transparency about the energy performance of individual buildings. To date, the implementation of this instrument varies significantly across Europe in terms of scope, information, comparability and user-friendliness, limiting its acceptance by users as well as its market penetration.
This statistical report is designed to help understand what drives final energy use in IEA member countries in order to improve and track national energy efficiency policies. It is the second edition of a comprehensive selection of data that the IEA has been collecting each year, after its member states recognised in 2009 the need to better monitor energy efficiency policies.
Roughly 97% of the European Union (EU)’s building stock is not considered energy efficient, and 75 to 85% of it will still be in use in 2050. Defining a pathway towards a ‘highly efficient and decarbonised building stock by 2050’ is a fundamental pillar of the revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), requiring the transformation of the majority of buildings from highly inefficient to, at least, nearly Zero-Energy Buildings.
The report ‘The Concept of the Individual Building Renovation Roadmapreport’ offers an overview of the process behind the creation of an Individual Building Renovation Roadmap and covers the key issues that need to be addressed to allow its development and implementation. Real-life examples based on four existing initiatives revolving around the concept of individual building roadmaps and passports are used in this report to demonstrate how the different elements can be designed and implemented
