Two partners of the EPC RECAST, Ing. Jana Bendžalová (ENBEE), PhD., Johann Zirngibl (CSTB), wrote an article in the TECHNICKÉ ZARIADENIA BUDOV (in slovak) on the New Generation EPC.
In December 2021, the European Commission published a proposal for a recast of the Energy performance of buildings Directive (2021/0426 (COD) as part of the second Fit for 55 package, which brings significant changes also affecting energy performance certificates for buildings. Their importance is increased by linking them to “green finance” and their use in Member States’ subsidy schemes and financial instruments is highlighted.
