requirements and cost-effectiveness (Article 1). The financial demand for the implementation of the energy saving measures amounts to approximately 20 billion Litas (5,8 billion euro). The majority of apartments in these multifamily buildings, i.e. 97% are privately owned.

The energy performance of part of a building should be assessed using the same methodology as that for the whole building, the only exception being that the useful area of the respective part of a building shall be used instead of the total useful area of the building. The energy performance of part of a building should be assessed as shown in Table 2.

The implementation of the Directive 2002/91/EC demands considerable labour and financial resources. Certification requirements for existing after major renovation (refurbished) buildings will come into force from 1 January 2009.

Existing buildings (total useful floor over 1000 m2)

The energy performance class of large buildings (building parts) with a heated area over 1000 m2 after major renovation must be not less than D. The requirements for the energy performance class are not obligatory for existing buildings (building parts) for sale or rent, but the evaluation procedure will be mandatory from 1 January, 2009.

These requirements came into force on 4 January, 2006. Certification requirements for existing and after major renovation (refurbished) buildings will come into force on 1 January, 2009.

Qualified Experts for Certification of energy performance of buildings

The Experts Training Program was adopted by the the Minister of Environment on 21 June, 2006. The software tool, mentioned above, was also adopted by the Minister of Environment.

Lithuania started the experts training courses on November, 2006. Up to the present time there is a group of 191 qualified experts.

Two institutions were appointed as experts training organisations: the Architecture and Building Institute of the Kaunas Technological University (KTU ASI) and the Quality Management Centre of Vilnius Gedimino Technical University (VGTU).

The Certification Centre of Construction Products (SPSC) under the Ministry of Environment was appointed for authorizing the experts and registration the building energy performance certificates. The cost/fee for the registration of certificates is 12 Litas (approximately 3,5 EUR, VAT not included) for every certificate.

An expert for certification of energy performance of buildings must conform to the requirements of the rules, pass the training courses and the examination and obtain the certificate of qualification. It is foreseen that the Experts Training Program will be revised every 5 years.

An Expert with the qualifications to certify buildings issues the Certificate of a building (its part) and is responsible for an objective certification process.
