La liste de contrôle de conformité BACS avec EPBD est maintenant en français
To support Member States implementing the revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), in 2020 eu.bac created a compliance checklist for Building Automation and Control System (BACS) requirements related to the mandatory capabilities listed in Art.14 and Art.15. Now, this checklist has been translated into French and includes references to the new standard EN ISO 52120 replacing the EN 15232.
The amending Directive 2018/844 had the transposition deadline in March 2020. Nevertheless, several countries are still struggling to integrate BACS requirements into their national legislation effectively. The checklist provides a necessary reference list for the Member States and other stakeholders to ensure the requirements set out in the Directive are followed.
eu.bac has shown its commitment to supporting stakeholders at all levels by providing constructive feedback and assistance in the process of reviewing legislation and facilitating its implementation. The Waide study has helped national policymakers understand the benefits and relevance of building automation and control system used as foreseen in the revised EPBD. The eu.bac Guidelines (in German) on the transposition of the Revised EPBD provide technical advice to all stakeholders involved in the transposition process.
This checklist is the next step in this commitment, offering a highly detailed tool for national compliance inspectors, building owners, BACS designers and policymakers. It helps industry professionals understand what systems need to be implemented, and helps authorities distinguish buildings that comply with EPBD BACS requirements from those that don’t.
The EU continues to increase its climate ambitions, most recently by confirming a target of 55% emissions reduction by 2030. eu.bac welcomes this commitment and pledges to contribute towards achieving these objectives. However, for these ambitions to become a reality, Member States need to meet the requirements in existing legislation. As such, eu.bac stresses the need to commit to implementing the EPBD Directive and enforcing BACS measures. As demonstrated by the Waide study this could lead to savings corresponding to 14% of the total building energy consumption, with 64 Mt CO2 annual savings and €36 billion energy bill savings. eu.bac continues to provide guidance and support to all stakeholders in this effort.
