Public consultation on energy efficiency in buildings

The Building Regulations Office (BRO) yesterday published the draft document for public consultation on the introduction of the EU methodology to calculate the energy efficiency in buildings.
The following is the media release issued by the Department of Information yesterday. To view the draft document, visit https://secure2.gov.mt/epc/home?l=1.

PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN BUILDINGS
The Building Regulations Office (BRO) within the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure has launched a document for public consultation on the way each European Union Member State has to implement Directive 2010/31/EU on energy efficiency in buildings.
According to this Directive, each Member State, including Malta, has to apply a methodology to calculate the energy efficiency in buildings according to the general framework specified in Annex I of this same Directive.
Through this methodology, each Member States independently, according to its climate and the buildings in that country, should calculate the optimal level of minimum requirements for the energy efficiency in buildings.
These new requirements mean that the consumer will have lower building costs as well as lower costs of use over a 30-year period. Apart from this, buildings that fulfil these new requirements give a better quality of life to users due to a higher quality.
These new requirements also encourage the use of environmentally friendly products and the development of systems and energy efficient materials in new buildings and those that are being renovated, as well as to increase employment in the construction sector related to environment-friendly technology, including that of renewable energy.
These documents, based on these calculations, are being submitted for public consultation. The closing date for this public consultation is Thursday, 13 August, 2015. The relative docucments can be read on the website www.epc.gov.mt, while anyone wishing to contact the Building Regulations Office can do so by phoning 22927134 or 22927634, or sending an e-mail to bro.mti@gov.mt.

Skont l-istess Direttiva, kull Stat Membru, inkluż Malta, għandhom japplikaw metodoloġija għall-kalkolu tar-rendiment ta’ bini fl-użu tal-enerġija, skont il-qafas ġenerali speċifikat fl-Anness I tal-istess Direttiva.
Permezz ta’ din il-metodoloġija, l-Istati Membri, kull wieħed indipendenti skont il-klima u l-bini ta’ dak il-pajjiż, għandhom jikkalkulaw il-livell ottimali tar-rekwiżiti minimi tar-rendiment fl-użu tal-enerġija fil-bini.
Dawn ir-rekwiżiti ġodda jfissru li l-konsumatur se jkollu inqas spejjeż meta jqis l-ispejjeż tal-bini kif ukoll l-ispejjeż għall-użu tiegħu għal perjodu ta’ 30 sena. Barra minn hekk, bini skont dawn ir-rekwiżiti ġodda jagħti kwalità ta’ ħajja aħjar lil min jużah minħabba li jkun ta’ kwalità aħjar.
Dawn ir-rekwiżiti ġodda jgħinu wkoll biex jintużaw teknoloġiji favur l-ambjent u l-iżvilupp ta’ sistemi u materjali effiċjenti fl-użu tal-enerġija f’bini ġdid u dak li jkun rinovat, kif ukoll biex jikbru l-impjiegi fis-settur tal-kostruzzjoni relatati ma’ teknoloġija favur l-ambjent, inkluż dik ta’ enerġija rinovabbli.
Dawn id-dokumenti li qegħdin jiġu sottomessi għall-konsultazzjoni pubblika huma bbażati fuq dawn il-kalkoli. Din il-konsultazzjoni pubblika tagħlaq il-Ħamis 13 t’Awwissu 2015 u d-dokumenti relattivi jistgħu jinqraw fuq is-sit www.epc.gov.mt filwaqt li min ikun jixtieq jagħmel kuntatt mal-Uffiċċju għar-Regolament tal-Bini jista’ jagħmel dan fuq in-numri tat-telephone 22927134 jew 22927634 jew jibgħat email fuq bro.mti@gov.mt.
