Geotherm Fora factsheet about Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD)

The EPBD is particularly important because buildings account for 40% of energy consumed and 36% of energy-related direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions. In the EU, heating, cooling and domestic
hot water account for 80% of the energy that households consume. Making Europe more resilient calls for renovation of EU buildings, making them more energy efficient and less dependent on fossil fuels.
Renovation is key for reducing the energy consumption of buildings, for bringing down emissions and for reducing energy bills. In particular, the aim of the revised EPBD will be to have ‘Zero-Emission
Building’ (ZEB) as the standard starting from 2030.
