Bulletins for the issuance of energy certificates and other calculations concerning existing buildings

diese Seite auf Deutsch

§ 9 section 2 and § 19 sections 3 and 4 EnEV refer to bulletins issued by the Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Affairs in agreement with the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, which foresee simplifications concerning the issuance of energy certificates and other calculations concerning existing buildings.

The aforementioned responsibilities were changed. The bulletins are now issued as "Joint bulletins of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety"

The versions of 7th April 2015 published here take the respective amendments of the Energy Saving Ordinance into account. These bulletins are published on this site by the Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development (BBSR) on behalf of the responsible Federal Ministries in pursuit of § 23 section 4 and in addition to the official publication in the “Bundesanzeiger” (official Journal of the German Federal Government).

Bulletins for residential buildings:

Bulletins for non-residential buildings:

These bulletins replace the former Bulletins of 30th July 2009.

Accompanying studies

For the preparation of the amendment of the Official Bulletins according to § 9 Section 2 EnEV ("Data recording and -use in residential- resp. non-residential building stock"), the BBSR has commissioned an expert’s opinion within the framework of a research project. The bulletins follow the expert’s findings and proposals to a large extent, but not in general.

Climate correction factors

Beginning with the 2009 edition of the bulletins, the climate correction factors of German Weather Service (DWD) should be used for the issuance of consumption-based energy certificates. From 1st May 2014, the correction factors pay respect to the amended reference climate.
