The new Buildings Energy Act (GEG) was published on 13th August 2020 in the “Bundesgesetzblatt” (Official Journal for Federal Legislation). By the 1st November 2020, it will replace the previous Energy Saving Act, the previous Energy Saving Ordinance and the previous Renewable-Energies-Heat Act. The “Deutscher Bundestag” (German parliament) adopted the GEG on 18th June 2020; after the Bundesrat (2nd chamber of parliament) approved, the Federal President signed the act on 8th August 2020.

The GEG is the main element of the “Law to harmonise the legislation concerning energy in buildings and to amend other laws of 8th August 2020”. On 29th October 2019, it had been introduced to the parliament by the Federal Government as a proposal of the Federal Ministry for Economy and Energy and the Federal Ministry of the Interior, for Building and Community.

Brief information about the GEG is provided amongst others on the website of the Federal Ministry of the Interior, for Building and Community.
