Energy Performance of Buildings

The new Law On the Energy Performance of Buildings came into force on 9 January 2013. The Law comprises legal norms arising from the Directive 2010/31/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 19 May 2010 on the energy performance of buildings. Along with the entry into force of the said Law, the previous Law On the Energy Performance of Buildings became null and void (13 March 2008). The new Law significantly improves the current regulation of energy performance of buildings, supplementing it with the novelties included in the Directive of the European Union.


In the middle of 2013, regulations subject to the Law On the Energy Performance of Buildings were adopted:

  • Cabinet Regulation No. 348 of 25 June 2013 “Regulations Regarding the Methodology for Calculating the Energy Performance of Buildings”;
  •  Cabinet Regulation No. 383 of 9 July 2013 “Regulations Regarding the Energy Certification of Buildings”;
  • Cabinet Regulation No. 382 of 9 July 2013 “Regulations Regarding the Independent Experts in the Field of Energy Performance”.
