FACT SHEET #45 | The Effinergie approach to ease transitions to new regulatory requirements

Since 2006, the Effinergie certification has been a major market driver in France for energy efficiency initiatives in all building types, new and renovated. It has been a laboratory for the 2012 energy regulation in France, for instance, for the overall primary energy minimum requirements or for the mandatory justification of an envelope airtightness level. In the same vein, the Effinergie+ and Bepos labels operational since 2012 and 2013 experiment new requirements and methods, which will serve for the 2020 revision of the energy regulation. Effinergie also developed regulatory-based low-energy buildings certifications for renovated buildings which are operational since 2009.
