External technical assistance has been provided to the MCIT and a simple methodology and software has been developed for the calculation of energy performance of new residential buildings, based on the relevant EN standards. Furthermore the MCIT is developing a new methodology and software that will perform the calculation of the energy performance for all types of buildings (new and existing, residential and non-residential). The methodology should be based on EN standards and comply with the requirements of the directive.

The MCIT has recently signed a contract with a local software company for the development of the methodology and user friendly software. According to the contract, the software should be delivered to the Energy Service by the 13th of October 2008. The software will produce the certificate as well as the advisory report. It should also take into account within the calculation procedure any form of energy that the building will use (e.g. RES).

Certification of buildings

The proposed regulations regarding the energy performance certification of buildings have been drafted under the guidance of the Advisory Committee Overseeing the implementation of the Directive and forwarded to the Attorney General office for legal vetting.

The energy performance certificate is intended to be issued by experts registered under the authority of the Energy Service for the purposes of building construction, sale or rent. Experts can be any Architect, Civil, Mechanical or Electrical engineer registered in the Technical Chamber of Cyprus who have 3 years experience in the related fields for residential buildings, and 6 years for non residential buildings and have a certificate for the successful completion of the training course related to the knowledge of the methodology, software and legislation. More details concerning the training scheme are not yet available.

The certificate should be produced by the software which the experts will use for calculating the energy performance of buildings and it should contain an advisory report with comments and suggestions for the improvement of the building’s energy performance. The quality and validity of the issued certificate will be checked by the Energy Service. The cost of the certificate depends upon the type of building and will not be restricted by the law. The advisory report will be issued by the software based on a standard check of some of the results and there will be an option for the expert to add more comments and advice.

Inspection of boilers and air conditioning

The inspection and maintenance of boilers, central heating systems and air-conditioning systems are included in “The Law for the Regulation of the Energy Performance of Buildings of 2006, L.142(I)/2006” and will not become mandatory until the 4th of January 2009. At present the regulations concerning the above subjects are being prepared by the relevant sub-committee. On completion of the proposed regulations expected by the end of July 2008 they will be sent to the Attorney General’s office for legal vetting.
