  1. The EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) Current Scottish progress on implementation Gavin Peart

  2. EPBD – Background • An EU Directive is a set of rules imposed on Member States by the European Parliament • It applies to all Member States • We can’t avoid implementation in Scotland • The ‘top line’ of this Directive is to ‘promote improvement in energy performance’

  3. EPBD – Set in context • Review of the Scottish Building Standards System – The Building (Scotland) Act 2003 • Review of Section 6: Energy • Housing Act (Single Survey) • Scottish Housing Quality Standard (SHQS)

  4. EPBD and new Scottish System Review of building standards system: • Started before EPBD negotiations • Implementation timescale • New system essential to EPBD implementation • New system started on 1 May 2005

  5. EPBD and review of Energy Stds • Current functional standards & guidance = level transposition • Drivers for the review • Consultation on proposed Energy Standards is now underway

  6. EPBD and Housing Act • Energy certification in consultation • ‘Single survey’

  7. EPBD and SHQS • Commitments for 2015

  8. EPBD – Who does what • SBSA – lead for Scotland • ODPM BR Division – lead for E & W (assisted by DEFRA) • DFP BR Unit – lead for NI • ODPM BR Division - negotiate for UK

  9. Aims of EPBD Reduce energy use in buildings to: • Meet EU’s Kyoto Protocol commitments and at same time: • Perceptibly increase user comfort but without requiring: • huge additional expenditure Exemptions: • Buildings that are not cooled or heated

  10. How will EPBD do this? Member States must: • Adopt a methodology • Set minimum standards for new build • Give consideration to LZC technologies • Use minimum standards for renovations • Require energy performance certificates • Require advice/inspection of boilers & air-con

  11. Methodologies They are needed for: • Setting standards (SAP and SBEM) • Generation of energy performance certificates The types of building: • Domestic (SAP) • Non-domestic (SBEM) Directive compliant? - Yes

  12. Setting standards • No level of energy performance specified for MSs to achieve • Review standards at least every 5 years • Exempt buildings • Reverse engineering Directive compliant? - Yes

  13. New buildings New build must meet minimum standards: • Building regulations & guidance • The building standards system New buildings (1000m2) must take LZC energy generating technologies, etc. into account where feasible • Output of research on SBSA website Directive compliant? - Yes

  14. Existing buildings The EPBD allows 2 options on tackling renovations in (1000m2) buildings: • The renovated systems will need to meet standards, or • The renovated building as a whole will need to meet standards First option adopted Directive compliant? - Yes

  15. Next stages • Notify Europe • Consultation

  16. Energy performance certificate The purpose of an EPC is to provide information to owners, tenants and visitors Building (Scotland) Act 2003 powers: • Require owners to obtain them through enforcement notices • Require display in buildings • Penalties for non-compliance • Register?

  17. EPC Timetable • Construction • Sale • Rental • Large public buildings

  18. Energy performance certificate The EPBD requires an EPC: • Construction, sale, rental and displayed at all times in (1000m2) public buildings • Consultation • Guidance • Drafting secondary legislation • Certification work

  19. Energy performance certificate Methodologies – not all finalised – but will include: • SAP • SBEM • RDSAP • SERT? • DSM? Appearance of EPC not finalised – but will include: • Numeric indicator of performance (CO2) • Heating type • Energy used • A-G banding • Benchmarks • Cost-effective recommendations

  20. Inspection of boilers Two options: • Inspection and offer advice – but independent manner of inspections; or • Offer advice (with possibly some inspections) – but there are reporting requirements Second option proposed – SBSA are working with EST as a partner organisation

  21. Inspection of boilers Partner organisation • Technical advice to users already drafted • Send out advice – target audience • Use BSR as resource (+ other avenues) • Feedback

  22. Inspection of air-conditioning Only one option: • Inspection and advice done in an independent manner • We set a functional standard and use continuing requirement powers in Building (Scotland) Act 2003 • Inspection work

  23. Summary of implementation • Have notified Europe about Art. 3,4,5 & 6 and the derogations • Public consultation April/May 2006 (12weeks) • Submit timetable for derogation of EPCs and boiler/air-con system inspections (Summer 2006) • Summer 2006 start boiler advice

  24. Summary of implementation • Once non-domestic methodology available, commence roll-out of EPCs for public buildings • Spring 2007, implement changes to energy standards in Scottish Regs and EPCs for construction • 2008?, align with Single Survey and EPCs at sale • Jan 2009, EPCs at rental • 2007/2008 phased air-con system inspections
