Energy efficiency

Public buildings - 28.02.2014

Local government exempt from EU directive's obligation to renovate 3% of public buildings
Thanks to the joint implication of CEMR and our members in favour of more flexibility for local and regional authorities, only EU central governments are now affected by the directive on energy efficiency. Since 1 January 2014, they are compelled to renovate 3% of their public buildings each year, in order to achieve the objectives set by the European Commission on energy efficiency.

As for the local government, they are therefore free to adopt the measures they consider as the best adapted to their particularities to meet the target of 20% of reduction of energy consumption by 2020.
