Requirements for auditors are now in the draft version phase. Legislative regulation is in draft version in which the requirements for energy auditors are defined. Energy auditors have to achieve compliance to such qualification requirements: › Theoretical knowledge based on university education programme (example, civil engineer) or on further education programme. An energy auditor has to be theoretically aware about building envelope heat techniques as well as building engineering technical systems and building climatology and the internal microclimate.

› Demonstrate their practical work experience if practical work experience if theoretical knowledge is based on further education programme.

› Pass a special energy auditor exam in which candidate must prove their theoretical and practical knowledge of usage of building energy efficiency calculation methodology.

To achieve the targets set out by EPBD Latvia has to train at least 100 auditors by the end of 2008.

3 > Future planning

For successful implementation of EPBD at national level it is crucial to adopt all necessary legislative documents by the end of 2008.

The Construction, Energy and Housing State Agency maintains energy efficiency policy realization. Future activities will depend on legislative documents established by the government.

4 > Advertising campaign

The responsibility for the campaign rests with the Latvian Building, energy and housing state agency.

Detailed information on the advertising campaigns is available on the agency website: www.ma.gov.lv or www.bema.gov.lv.

Energy efficiency popularization campaigns and Private and Public partnership projects have been organised since 2004 on a national basis, sometime with private co-financing.

The names of regular campaigns were “Housing days” and “Energy efficiency days”. The main part of campaign was face to face meetings with inhabitants and management authorities, discussions, seminars, radio programmes. As a additional bonus a short film about energy efficiency and experiences in the renovation process was prepared. During 2007 energy-audit co-financing and preliminary thermography of the large scale houses was used as motivation. All building received an energy audit and
