|Legal References:||21 FEVRIER 2013 Arrêté du Gouvernement de la Région de Bruxelles-Capitale modifiant l'arrêté du Gouvernement de la Région de Bruxelles-Capitale du 21 décembre 2007 déterminant des exigences en matière de performance énergétique et de climat intérieur des bâtiments|
In 2011, the Government set new threshold requirements for energy performance and interior climate of buildings, aiming at standards comparable to the passive concept for new buildings allocated to housing, schools, and office and service activities for 2015. This new decree abrogates the previous one and represents a genuinely ambitious advance. In quantitative terms, it requires that starting 1 January 2015, individual Housing PEB units have: a primary energy consumption for heating, domestic hot water and electrical appliances below 45 kWh per m2 per year, airtightness at 50 Pa below 0.6 per hour, a net heating need below 15 kWh per m2 per year, an overheating temperature that can only exceed 25°C for 5% of the time throughout the year. As for Offices and Services PEB units and Educational PEB units, the decree provides for: a total primary energy consumption below (90-2.5*C) kWh per m2 per year, with C defined as the compactness, that is, the ratio between the volume enclosed and the loss area, airtightness at 50 Pa below 0.6 renewals per hour, a net heating need below 15 kWh per m2 per year, a net cooling need below 15 kWh per m2 per year, an overheating temperature that can only exceed 25°C for 5% of the utilisation period.
