Revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive 2018 published in Official Journal

On 19 June 2018, Directive (EU) 2018/844 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 May 2018 amending Directive 2010/31/EUon the energy performance of buildings and Directive 2012/27/EU on energy efficiency was published in the Official Journal.

The Directive is part of the Clean Energy for All Europeans legislative package and includes provisions that:

  • Set a path towards a “highly energy efficient and decarbonised building stock” by 2050.
  • Support the rollout of infrastructure for electromobility of all buildings.
  • Encourage the use of information and communication technology (ICT) and smart technologies.

Member states are required to transpose the Directive by 10 March 2020. As this date will be after Brexit (although, on current plans, within the transition period), the UK will not be obliged to transpose the Directive unless announcements are made to the contrary.
