1 1 European actions to improve the energy efficiency of buildings and BUILD UP and ASIEPI Olli Seppänen Secretary general Federation of European Heating and Air-conditioning Associations

2 2 Climate Action: Energy for a Changing World This Climate Action from Dec 2008 builds on the many targets the EU set itself in 2007 for 2020 as part of the Energy Policy for the European Union including: Energy Policy for the European Union 20% reduction in greenhouse gases; 20% increase in energy efficiency, and increasing renewable energy use to 20% of total energy consumption 10% share of bio-fuels in transport fuels by 2020

3 Political and Economical Motivation Environment: Climate change: up to +6.4 Kelvin in 2100 (IPCC) Financial and Economic Crisis: EU’s Economic Recovery Plan Social & Economic: Recent energy prices and their volatility Security & Economy: EU Energy Import Dependency - Forecast: 3/12

4 Role of the Building Sector  40 % of EU’s energy use  36 % of EU’s CO 2 emissions  Cost-effective energy savings potential: ~30 % by 2020  9 % of GDP, 8 % of employment and  €2 trillion annual turnover 4/12

5 5 European Commission - DG TREN Five important energy directives Building performance – EPBD – 2002 and 2010 Member States to save at least an additional 1% of their final energy consumption each year for the next 9 years improvement of energy performance of buildings Energy using products – EuP Free movement of Energy using products (Art 95) All aim at protecting the environment and securing energy supply End use efficiency and energy services -ESD Co-generation 2004 Renewable energies – December 2008 Increase of co-generation up to 18% Increase the use of renewables up to 20%, biofuels upto 10%

6 6 Energy Performance Buildings Directive (EPBD) Adopted in 2002, revision 2010 Deadline for implementation: January 4, 2006 Extension possible for Art. 7 to 9 until January 4, 2009 Unsatisfactory progress in a number of MS A good examples available

7 7 Recasting of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive 2007 preparatory work started in DG TREN Unit of energy efficiency – two experts working full time Seminar by invitation in in February 2008 during EUSEW–also REHVA invited Public Consultation June 2008 via inernet responses including REHVA´s Revised (recast) version was submitted to EU-parliament and Council in November 2008 Appointement of rapporteur (EPBD-Mrs Ticau from Romania) Committee meetings (EPBD in Industry, Research and Energy Committee) Jan- March 2009

8 8 Recasting of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive First time in the Council in Feb 2009 Informal consultations: political groups, comission, council president Exchange of views 500 amendments proposed in EPBD recast – 93 in the final versions to parliament Recast approved in the plenary meeting of the Parliament April 24, 2009

9 ©2009 European Parliament, Visits and Seminars Unit 9 The European Commission Legislative power is in hands of the Parliament and Council Commission proposal First reading in Council (Council position) Conciliation committee (if necessary) Second reading in Council (if necessary) Second reading in Parliament (if necessary) Final vote in third reading (if necessary) Final vote in third reading (if necessary) The Council of the European Union The European Parliament First reading in Parliament (Parliament opinion)

10 10 Most significant changes in the recasting of EPBD 2002 Omit 1000 m² thresholds within the existing EPBD Better use and improved quality of energy performance certificates and follow up Requirements on heating and air-conditioning systems, and better inspection procedures Minimum energy performance requirements National plans towards zero energy buildings Strengthening of the leading role of the public sector Reporting as part of NEEAP

11 11 CEN Standards supporting the implementation of EPBD Originally 31 work items in several CEN Technical committees – mainly voluntary work some support from commission Resulting in about 42 draft standards All approved in the final formal voting in January 2009, totally over 2000 pages –Heating systems –Ventilation and cooling –Energy performance calculation –Room temperature calculation –Heat losses, building physics –Inspections of A/C, ventilation and boilers Standards available from national standardization organizations Jaap Hogeling from ISSO in a key role as coordinator

12 12 Energy using products directive - EuP Directive addresses all member states Implementing measures address manufacturers Applied to all energy using products, excluding vehicles Sold in important quantities ~ Significant environmental impact + potential for improvement Life-cycle cost approach used in the analysis to set the criteria

13 13 Regulations based on Energy using products directive Apply without any national approval to all EU- countries Apply to all manufactured and imported products in the common market First regulations given in January 2009 Fans, pumps etc later in 2009

14 | 14 NOUVELLE LÉGISLATION EUROPÉENNE POUR ÉCONOMISER L’ÉNERGIE Ecodesign and Labelling : current status (1). 25 products under preparation. Implementing Measures that were/will be voted by the regulatory committee before 2Q 2009: Total estimated savings (347 TWh) = about 10% of gross annual electricity generation in the EU

15 | 15 NOUVELLE LÉGISLATION EUROPÉENNE POUR ÉCONOMISER L’ÉNERGIE Ecodesign Working Plan. Adopted on October 21 st Gives indicative product families to be tackled under Ecodesign in Product groups include: » Air-conditioning and ventilation systems (not tackled under the ongoing studies) » Electric and fossil-fuelled heating equipment » Food-preparing equipment » Industrial and laboratory furnaces and ovens » Machine tools » Network, data processing and data storing equipment » Refrigerating and freezing equipment » Sound and imaging equipment » Transformers » Water-using equipment. Applicable studies on some of the above to be launched in 2009

16 | 16 NOUVELLE LÉGISLATION EUROPÉENNE POUR ÉCONOMISER L’ÉNERGIE HVAC related studies to be launched in Local room heating products. Central heating products using hot air to distribute heat (other than CHP). Domestic and commercial hobs and grills, including when incorporated in cookers. Networked standby losses of EuPs. Transformers: distribution transformers, power transformers,

17 | 17 NOUVELLE LÉGISLATION EUROPÉENNE POUR ÉCONOMISER L’ÉNERGIE Labelling: Energy Star. Voluntary energy efficiency labelling of office equipment: computers, monitors, printers, copiers etc. Scheme shared with US, Japan and others. General principle: when specifications are set 25% of the models on the market may qualify. Since last year central governement authorities in EU MS have to use in their public procurement criteria not less demanding than Energy Star

18 18 Directive on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources (December 2008) electricity, heating and cooling and transport a 20% target for the overall share of energy from renewable sources and a 10% target for renewable energy in transport the proposed directive sets the principles how the use of renewable is defined, for example, the heat pump heating system

19 19 Increasing the share of renewable energies from 2005 to 2020 (more than 10% from all national primary energy use) The Netherlands 2.4% -> 14% Finland28.5->38% Denmark 17.0% -> 30% Germany 5.8% ->18% Estonia 18.0% -> 25% Ireland 3.1% ->16% Greece 6.9%->18% Spain 8.7% ->20% France 10.3%->23% Italy 5.2% -> 17%

20 20 Renewable sources defined Active solar Hydro Biomass (boilers or co-generation) with min fuel efficiency >0.8 Wind Geothermal Heat sources of heat pumps (air, water, ground) Not included in renewables to avoid double counting: Improvements in energy efficiency Passive solar

21 21 Heat sources of heat pumps Heat taken from outdoor air, ground and water considered renewable – minus the electricity used by heat pump Only the heat pumps with seasonal COP over app. 3 (depending the structure of electricity generation)

22 22 The Intelligent Energy Europe Programme Converting policy into action Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation -EACI

23 23 IEE PROGRAMME ( ) YEARS Total IEE 2 Budget (mio€) Complementary to research programs FP7 and Structural Funds Annual Work Programmes / Calls for Proposals The call closing on June

24 Advanced ventilation systems Air-conditiong inspections Assessment of impact of EPBD Use of CEN standards in EU MSs

25 25 Promotion of EPBD through Buildings Platform and BUILD UP initiative information service for helping the implementation of the EPBD The official EC information channel for EPBD related issues REHVA participates in the phase buildings platform and phase in BUILD UP
