    The issue of energy regulations for new building is one of current relevance. After all, in April 2001, the European Commission proposed the EC draft directive COM (2001) 226 on improving the energy performance of buildings, including the development of a common framework throughout Europe for designing energy regulations. The European Commission is heading for a Europe-wide introduction of the energy performance method. It is expected that the directive will be accepted in the second half of 2002 and will come into effect that same year. One of the main purposes of this draft directive is to develop a common methodology for energy regulations for buildings within Europe, based on the concept of calculating the energy consumption and setting energy performance standards. This methodology is widely known as the ¿energy performance method¿.
