"EmployRES-II project quantifies positive effects of renewables.  Researchers found out that further promotion of renewable energy will contribute significantly towards growth and employment, reduction of energy imports (in particular natural gas) and GHG emission savings. The study can be found here.”

Final report - Building Certification Schemes

Energy Efficiency
11/2014

In December 2014, the European Commission received a market study on the voluntary common EU certification scheme for non-residential buildings, in accordance with EPBD Article 11(9). Giving an overview of existing voluntary schemes, this report aims at analysing the demand for a European wide voluntary scheme. It concludes that reliability, cost and international acceptance are key factors for scheme selection. The main added value of this voluntary EU scheme would be to allow a consistent comparison between non-residential buildings across the EU. Besides, it could contribute to raising the ambition for building certification in some Member States. The study also shows that the voluntary EU scheme should build on CEN standards, start with a pilot phase (e.g. with offices and hotels), take a modular approach for energy performance only, and be applied both for public & private buildings, as well as new & existing buildings. Finally, it is recommended that the voluntary EU scheme should use a comparative label design, and that a third party should be responsible for the technical development of it.
