Policy Target:

In 1999, the central government undertook a campaign to persuade Spains 17 regional governments to require, by 2002, that newly-built housing in Spain be energy efficient and could certifiably reduce CO 2 emissions. The regional governments have jurisdiction over the housing norms, and the central government is suggesting that the housing certification be done by a building developer, using computer programmes that would help specify energy-efficient standards for the structure. The qualification would be on a scale of 6 to 10.
