Proposal for a revision of the energy performance of buildings directive (EPBD)

Published 14-10-2022

On 15 December 2021, the European Commission published a proposed revision of the directive on the energy performance of buildings (COM(2021) 802 final).

With this proposal the Commission aims to upgrade the existing regulatory framework to reflect higher ambitions and more pressing needs in climate and social action, while providing EU countries with the flexibility needed to take into account the differences in the building stock across Europe. It also sets out how Europe can achieve a zero-emission and fully decarbonised building stock by 2050.

The final directive is expected in 2023.

The Concerted Action EPBD (CA EPBD) addresses the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). It aims to contribute to the reduction of energy use in European buildings, through the exchange of knowledge and best practices in the field of energy efficiency and energy savings between all 28 European Union Member States plus Norway.
