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