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

§ 9 section 2 and § 19 sections 3 and 4 EnEV empower the responsible federal ministries to jointly issue bulletins which foresee simplifications concerning the issuance of energy certificates and other calculations concerning existing buildings. At the time of issuing of the current bulletins, the Federal Ministry for Economy and Energy (BMWi) and the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) were responsible.

The versions of 7th April 2015 published here take into account the respective amendments of the Energy Saving Ordinance. 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 EnEV and in addition to the official publication in the “Bundesanzeiger” (official Journal of the German Federal Government).

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.
