If we want a better consideration of the energy retrofit in buildings, energy must become a performance criterion of choice for future purchasers or lessors of housing or office buildings. This is the objective of certification EPB : provide objective information on the energy performance of the property sought. It indicates the energy class of the property on a scale from A (most efficient) to G (very high energy). It is established based on several assumptions, such as a standardized behavior of the occupant and an average year-round climate.

The EPB certificate allows potential buyers or potential tenants to compare the energy point of view the different properties they visit on a common basis of calculation for estimating energy performance. The EPB certificate also includes recommendations for improving the energy performance level of the dwelling.
The requirement for an EPB certificate is the result of the Government’s Decree (2011).
