General Administrative Regulation for § 13 EnEV 2004
(validity period 09/12/04 – 30/09/07)
In pursuit of § 13 of EnEV 2002 ("certificates on energy- and heat demand, energy consumption indicators"), a general administrative regulation was issued to determine the content and format of the certificates (due for new buildings and certain essential modifications).
Despite the regulation being formally binding only for the authorities (e. g. demanding a certificate in course of issuing a building permit), it concerns in practice the building owners, engineers and architects as well.
This general administrative regulation was amended by the General Administrative Ordinance amending the General Administrative Ordinance for § 13 Energy Saving Ordinance of 2nd December 2004 (Allgemeine Verwaltungsvorschrift zur Änderung der Allgemeinen Verwaltungsvorschrift zu § 13 der Energieeinsparverordnung vom 2. Dezember 2004; Bundesanzeiger Nr. 233 S. 23804)
(Unofficial version only available in German)
The result was the General Administrative Regulation for § 13 EnEV 2004 (validity period 09/12/04 – 30/09/07)
(only available in German)
The German federal Government did not exercise the other authorisations given in § 13: Neither data for climate correction of measured consumption nor reference values for consumption indicators were published.
