Amendment of the EPBD and launch of the CA EPBD V
A new contract was signed in May 2018 between the European Commission’s Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) and the 28 EU MS plus Norway for the continuation of the Concerted Action for the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (CA EPBD). CA EPBD’s fifth contracting period is running from 1 May 2018 until 30 April 2022. The Management Team’s kick-off meeting coincided with the publication, in the Official Journal of the European Union, of the EPBD review, Directive 2018/844, amending Directive 2010/31/EU on the energy performance of buildings and Directive 2012/27/EU on energy efficiency. This represents the first major step towards the implementation of the Energy Union’s Clean Energy for all Europeans Package.
