EPBD Recast 2022 - Automated solar shading, a key solution to reach 2050’s decarbonisation goals for the European building stock

05 April 2022

The European Commission unveiled the new proposal for the revision of EPBD on 15th december 2021. This recast is necessary if we want to reach EU’s increased climate ambition, as only 10% of EU buildings are part of the energy performance certificate class A and B and almost 75% dwellings have class D and E. The proposal is now following the legislative procedure where amendments will be presented.

ES-SO POSITION ON EPBD RECAST:  Solar shading must be integrated as a Technical Building System (TBS) in article 2, point 3 of the EPBD. Without solar shading integration in the new EPBD revision, we would miss a huge opportunity to increase energy efficiency in buildings and to reduce GHG emissions.
