EPBD.wise - Effective implementation of the EPBD in line with short-term and long-term policy requirements
Data inizio: ottobre
Data fine: giugno
Project co-funded by the European Commission‘s LIFE-2022-CET-POLICY - Grant Agreement N.ro 101120194
Energy and climate targets require a radical increase in efforts for implementing and strengthening policies in the building sector. The proposal for a revised EPBD introduced several elements to reach these goals e.g., zero-emission buildings (ZEB), national building renovation plans (NBRP), minimum energy performance standards (MEPS). Other instruments are strengthened: building renovation passports (BRP) and energy performance certificates (EPC). Recent developments (gas/energy/economic crises) have triggered shortterm actions and objectives, leaving Member States (MS) with the challenging task to find solutions to implement them all at once and avoid lock-in effects. The project will achieve three objectives: 1) Support public authorities in six MS (focus countries) in the design, implementation and evaluation of instruments (re-) defined in the proposal of the EPBD (ZEB, NBRP, MEPS, BRPs, EPCs) 2) Adopt a consistent approach for the implementation of building policies stemming from the EPBD recast and use synergies with Fitfor55 and other EU strategies 3) Build a replicable model to support the implementation of EU legislation by closely engaging with CA-EPBD, network agencies, and national partners of the Renovate Europe Campaign as well as policy makers and stakeholders. We will analyse national examples, provide support and technical advice and develop tailored policy packages and tools adapted to the specific needs of focus countries. These will include guidelines on how to design policies and instruments, measure their effectiveness (monitoring, reporting and policy evaluation) and adjust to EU and national needs and objectives. The project will establish an intensive stakeholder engagement in focus countries, including policy fora and bilateral exchanges with implementing bodies. Selected activities and results will be provided to focus countries; replication and adaptation to EU-27 will be assured through a series of workshops at EU level.
