Zum 1. November 2020 hat das Gebäudeenergiegesetz (GEG) das bisherige Energieeinsparungsgesetz (EnEG), die bisherige Energieeinsparverordnung (EnEV) und das bisherige Erneuerbare-Energien-Wärmegesetz (EEWärmeG) abgelöst. Aus diesem Grund wird das Bundesinstitut für Bau-, Stadt- und Raumforschung das Infoportal Energieeinsparung in Kürze an den neuen Rechtsstand anpassen. Die Arbeiten dazu laufen mit Hochdruck. Der neue auf das GEG umgestaltete Internetauftritt wird innerhalb der nächsten Wochen zur Verfügung stehen.

Eco-design Directive

diese Seite auf Deutsch

The European "Directive 2009/125/EC establishing a framework for the setting of eco-design requirements for energy-related products" fixes energetic and environmental relevant requirements for products in one directive. The Energy-using Products Act (EuPA) implements the directive into German law. Responsible in Germany is the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.

The Eco-design Directive intends to establish minimum efficiency requirements for various product groups within individual "implementing measures". It leads to a gradually exclusion of very inefficient appliances and products from the market. This is a contribution to meet national and European climate protection goals at product level.

Especially the following implementing measures are relevant for building energy performance:

  • ENER 1 Space heaters and combination heaters (Gas/Oil/electric)
  • ENER 2 Water heaters and hot water storage tanks (Gas/Oil/electric)
  • ENER 8 Office lighting
  • ENER 10 Air conditioners and comfort fans
  • ENER 11 Glandless circulators, Water pumps, Fans
  • ENER 15 Solid fuel boilers
  • ENER 19 Non-directional household lamps, directional lamps, light emitting diode lamps and related equipment; Amendment / repeal of several regulations for light sources and separate control gears
  • ENER 20 Local space heaters
  • ENER 21 Air heating products, cooling products, high temperature process chillers and fan coil units
  • GROW 6 Ventilation units

For further relevant product sectors (windows, insulation material) studies were carried out without further action so far. A pre-study was commissioned concerning building automation. For more informationcan be obtained from the website of the Federal Institute for Material Research and Testing (BAM).
