BPIE Future-proof buildings for all Europeans – A guide to implement the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive
Two-thirds of the European building stock was built before 1980: about 97% of the EU’s buildings must be upgraded to achieve the 2050 decarbonisation goal, but only 0.4-1.2% are renovated each year.

The recent amendments [2018/844] to the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) [2010/31/EU] set a clear direction for the full decarbonisation of the European building stock by 2050. It provides a clear goal for Member States and the tools to achieve it.
However, implementation is rarely a straightforward task: this comprehensive toolkit provides guidance, tips, case studies and templates to support and inspire EU Member States to meet this challenge.
Long-term renovation strategies, financing of renovation, EPCs and building renovation passports, smart readiness indicator and how to calculate energy performance: the publication focuses on articles were requirements evolved or were added.
