Reduction of energy consumption is currently high on the political agenda of many
countries. Because buildings consume a significant amount of the total energy
consumption they form a big energy saving potential. For this reason the EPBD was
introduced. This directive introduced a mandatory energy performance certificate for all buildings in Europe (in the Netherlands implemented as energy label). The initial aim of this directive was to make people aware of the energy efficiency state of the building that they buy or rent.
