Setting the 3% Target for Public Buildings Renovation

Establishment of the 3% target for the renovation of public buildings – implementation status of Article 5 of the EED

From January 2014, the Member States of the European Union have the obligation to annually renovate 3% of the total area of ​​heated and / or cooled buildings that are public property and used by their central administration, so that they meet the minimum established energy efficiency requirements.

The European Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE) has compiled in a prospectus both the current situation regarding the implementation of Article 5 of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED – 2012/27 / EU), as well as the conclusions drawn from the research.

Six months after the deadline for the submission of a formal report by the Member States in relation to Article 5 of the above Directive, the BPIE analysed the posted reports. On 24 June 2014, the official website of the European Commission was still missing information from eight European countries, while to date – one year after the official deadline – the reports of four countries are not available.

This is the first in a series of newsletters focusing on the European building stock and helping the BPIE’s mission to provide useful and reliable data aimed at improving the energy efficiency of buildings inside and outside Europe.

This is the introductory text published by the BPIE and refers to the BPIE prospectus for Article 5 of the Energy Efficiency Directive.
