Members of the sub-committees are Governmental Departments or Services, Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs), the Technical Chamber, Associations and other parties involved in the building sector appointed by the Law for the Regulation of the Energy Performance of Buildings of 2006, L.142(I)/2006. Their duty is to advise the Minister of Commerce, Industry and Tourism for the preparation of the methodology for the calculation of the energy performance of buildings and its revisions, for the setting of the minimum requirements and their revisions and for the correct and proper implementation of the directive and its transposition to the national legislation.

Since the 21st of December, 2007 two ministerial orders regarding the methodology for the calculation of the energy performance of buildings and the minimum requirements for the energy performance of buildings have been published, enforcing part of the Law for the Regulation of the Energy Performance of Buildings of 2006, L.142(I)/2006.

As a first step, the minimum requirements set for the energy performance of buildings are restricted to the insulation of the envelope, and are shown in the table below.

Table 1: Minimum requirements for the energy performance of all new buildings and buildings exceeding 1000 m2 of total useful floor area undergoing major renovation.

U – Description

Horizontal structural elements of the shell.

Walls and structural elements of the shell.

Windows

Floor in contact with unheated spaces

value (W/m2K)

≤ 0.75 ≤ 0.85 ≤ 3.8 ≤ 2

Comments

Not applied to passive systems

Not applied to shop windows

At this stage the above minimum requirements apply for all new buildings and buildings exceeding 1000 m2 of total useful floor area undergoing major renovation regardless of their location.

2 > Status of the implementation

The enactment of the legislation concerning the minimum energy requirements for all new buildings and existing buildings exceeding 1000 m2 total useful floor area undergoing major renovation has been in force since the 21st of December 2007. Major renovations comprise those buildings where the total cost of the renovation related to the building shell and/or energy installations such us heating, hot water supply, air- conditioning, ventilation and lighting is higher than 25% of the value of the building, excluding the value of the land upon which the building is situated, or those where more than 25% of the building shell undergoes renovation. As a result of this enactment, the designer of a building, when submitting an application for a building permit, should submit to the local authorities a set of the energy performance calculations proving compliance with the minimum requirements published by the Minister.

For this purpose the MCIT has prepared a guidance document concerning the thermal insulation of buildings and developed a simple calculation tool for the calculation of the U values of the elements composing the building shell. Both the guide and calculation tool, are available on the Ministry
