Energy certificates for buildings
In Spain from 1 June 2013, houses for sale or rent must have an energy performance certificate. Otherwise, owners can be fined with penalties ranging from 300€ to 6,000€, depending on the Real Decreto approved on April 5, which was supplemented by a number of amendments in the Rehabilitation Law.
This certificate will specify a scale of seven letters from A to G, the level of CO2 emissions compared to the dimensions of the building. The aim is that the buyer / tenant can assess and compare the energy efficiency as an added factor in decisions to buy or rent. The price of the energy efficiency certificate is determined for the own characteristics of the each dwelling.
How is it done?
In a building, energy efficiency is calculated by measuring the energy consumed every year under normal use and occupancy. It takes into account all services used regularly, like heating, cooling, ventilation, domestic hot water and lighting in order to maintain the conditions of thermal and lighting comfort and water needs hot and indoor air quality.
Specifically, the indicator captures CO2 kilograms divided by the square footage of the dwelling kgCO2/m²/yr. Those with a ratio of emissions below 6.8kgCO2/m²/yr is assigned the letter A, the highest rating. The worst grade (G) is for buildings that exceed 70.9kgC02/m²/yr.
