Energy efficient buildings: Council adopts revised directive

16 May 2018

On the 14 May 2018, the Council of the European Union adopted a revised directive on the energy performance of buildings, so completing the final stage in the legislative procedure.

The directive improves energy efficiency in buildings and encourages building renovation. Decarbonising the existing, highly inefficient European building stock is one of its long term goals. It promotes cost-effective renovation work, introduces a smartness indicator for buildings, simplifies the inspections of heating and air conditioning systems and promotes electro-mobility by setting up a framework for parking spaces for electric vehicles.
