Energy performance of buildings.
Arrangement of the Minister of the Interior and Kingdom Relations amending the Building Decree Regulation 2012 in relation to renewable energy in the event of major renovation
A number of amendments are made to the Arrangement for Building Decree 2012.
This amendment to the Building Decree 2012 is the further elaboration of the Decree amending the Building Decree 2012 and the Living Environment Buildings Decree in relation to renewable energy in the event of major renovation. The aforementioned amending decree concerns the implementation of the revised Renewable Energy Directive (Directive (EU) 2018/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2018 on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources (recast) (PbEU 2018, L 382)). This revised Directive (hereinafter also: REDII) contains in the Article 15, paragraph four, an obligation for Member States to require a quantity of renewable energy in the case of new buildings and major renovations. For new buildings, this was implemented by the Decree of 13 December 2019, amending the Building Decree 2012 and some other decisions on near-energy-neutral new buildings, or BENG Decree (Stb. 2019, 501). Under that decision, a requirement for a minimum value for the share of renewable energy applies from 1 January 2021. For major renovations, the obligation has been implemented by the Decree amending the Building Decree 2012 and the Living Environment Buildings Decree in relation to renewable energy in the event of major renovations, of which
this regulation concerns the elaboration.
Article I may contain technical regulations. In addition to a minor technical change, this article contains the designation of recent versions of ISSO publications for determining the building shell, as well as the designation of the ‘Renewable energy guidelines for major renovation’. These guidelines should simplify implementing the renewable energy requirement with the help of an action plan, clarifying the exceptions to the requirement and providing practical examples.
