Energy performance policy is a way of incorporating energy standards into building regulations. Its recent influence is illustrated by the fact that the European Commission is now urging all European member states to introduce energy performance policies for the building sector by the year 2006. One of the expected benefits of energy performance policy is that it can help to introduce new techniques, for example in the field of ventilation management of buildings. This paper discusses to what extent the introduction of Energy Performance policy will influence the indoor climate. The effects of energy performance policy for the indoor climate in the Netherlands are presented, using the results of an empirical study, complemented by desk research.
