All new buildings are required in the building code to reach a performance standard. Renewables in buildings like solar thermal, PV, passive solar and heat pumps, contribute to reach a low energy coefficient. For housing, the acceptable level of the coefficient was reduced from 1.0 in 2000 to 0.8 in 2006. The acceptable level of the coefficient is reduced from 0,8 to 0,6 in 2011. This policy fits into the European Performance of Buildings Directive that requires all EU countries to set limits to the energy use for new buildings.
