Evaluation of the EPBD and impact assessment of policy options

Ecofys evaluated in the framework of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) review the effect of the Directive and realised an impact assessment of policy options for the European Commission.

Specifically, the team

  • evaluated the EPBD (ex-post) related to the fulfilment of its aims and whether it remains fit for purpose and evaluated the public consultation;
  • developed policy options in the framework of the EPBD review; and
  • evaluated policy options including scenario calculations (ex-ante assessment).

The European Commission used this work for the process of the review and update of the EPBD.
