Rapport lagt fram av Kommisjonen 20.6.2013
BAKGRUNN (fra Kommisjonens nettside om energieffektivitet)
On 20 June 2013, the Commission published a study on "Energy performance certificates in buildings and their impact on transaction prices and rents in selected EU countries". The study shows a positive impact of the Energy Performance Certificate under the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (Directive 2010/31/EU) on sales and rental prices indicating that better energy efficiency is rewarded in the market. In one of the first studies of its kind to include an analysis of residential markets in Europe, it was found that higher energy ratings result in substantially higher sales or rental values of buildings on average in most of the Member States that were analysed. The study was commissioned to consortium led by BIO INTELLIGENCE SERVICE.
