Accompanying studies to the latest amendment of the Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV 2013)
Also for the latest amendment, a set of studies as material for the further development of the Energy Saving Ordinance was commissioned and analysed by BBSR.
These studies concern the following topics:
- the requirements and the methods to setup requirements
- the system of energy certification
- other issues
The present studies - mostly done in 2012 to prepare the EnEV 2013 - reflect the opinion of their respective authors. They are, of course, not binding for the legislator, but were used as decision-making aid in the political process.
In addition to the studies presented here, the BBSR subsidised or commissioned in the framework of the "Research Initiative Future Building" ten other projects serving the further development of the calculation method in DIN V 18599 during the years 2010 and 2011. These projects were - at best - indirectly connected to the legal amendment and therefore are not presented on this site.
