Energy Advise Procedure

based on requirements such as several degrees (architects and engineers) and/or professional experience in the field of energy in buildings. Up to now, more than 330 assessors have been accredited, while another 300 are currently waiting for the training. Among those, more than 100 will be accredited by the end of 2008. All the audits are centralised on a database. At this moment, more than 3750 audits are included in this database.

Other voluntary actions are in place in order to prepare the tertiary sector to the Directive transposition. At the moment, more than 85 research departments are accredited.

1 > Legal context

The implementation of the EPBD in the Walloon Region is the responsibility of the regional Ministry of Energy and sustainable building (articles 3, 4 ,5, 6, 7 and partly 10 for certification aspects) and the regional Ministry of Environment (articles 8, 9 and partly 10 for inspection of boilers and air conditioners).

On 9th March 2007, the Government of the Walloon Region approved a proposal of decree at first reading regarding the transposition of the EPBD in regional law. The decree has been adapted following the remarks issued during the consultation. As far as the mandatory procedure is concerned, the proposal of decree was approved by the Government respectively on 13th July 2007, 21st December 2007 and 15th February 2008. On 19th April 2008, the Parliament approved the decree.

The decree, as a framework that transposes the EPBD into regional law, has integrated the CWATUP (regulation on country planning and town planning) that now becomes CWATUPE (E for "Energie"). As from now, orders have to be taken to define the mode of enforcement of the law.

The decree establishes the minimum requirements that must be achieved for new buildings, as well as for major renovations of existing buildings. Major renovations according to the execution order, are renovations of buildings exceeding 1000m2 of total useful floor area, where the total cost of the renovation related to the building shell, or of the energy installations, is higher than 25 % of the value of the building, excluding the value of the land upon which the building is situated, or those buildings where more than 25% of the building’s shell undergoes renovation.

The person in charge of the definition and description of the measures to fulfil the EPB requirements, as well as of the control of the building works, has been identified in the decree as "EPB responsible".

The procedure is linked to the building permit. The procedure is divided in three stages:

1) On application for a building permit, "a declaration of honour" has to be attached to the permit application and needs to be co-signed both by the EPB responsible and the applicant,

2) 15 days before the beginning of the building works, the EPB initial declaration has to mention the main measures to fulfil the EPB requirements and needs to be co-signed both by the EPB responsible and the applicant,
