Public Consultation on the Evaluation of the EPBD
Energy Performance of Buildings Directive
The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) acts as the main legislative instrument to promote the improvement of the overall energy performance of buildings in the EU. The objective of the public consultation was to consult stakeholders on the review of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive and evaluate whether the directive has met its aims. The public consultation ran from June to October 2015 as a key component of the review of the directive, which is due by the end of 2016 as required under Article 19 of the directive.
The purpose of this analysis was to gain an in-depth view of the public opinion on the EPBD. As citizens, public authorities, organisations, companies, etc. who are involved in or affected by the implementation of the EPBD, stakeholder could provide valuable insights into where those policies are most effective and where the bottlenecks lie.
The public consultation covered twelve sections including 79 questions. Ecofys was assigned to evaluate the responses by 308 stakeholders from all Member States.
