The German government has kept on working on the Energy Conservation Ordinance in 2000. This Ordinance on Energy Conservation in Buildings is to bring together the previous Thermal Insulation Ordinance and the Heating Installations Ordinance in order to achieve an overall energy optimisation of new buildings. By stricter insulation standards, the heating needs of new buildings are to be lowered to approximately 70 kWh/m2 corresponding to a reduction of 30% compared to current standards. Furthermore, heating boilers installed before October 1978 will have to be replaced. The Energy Conservation Ordinance should be passed by autumn 2001.
