Abstract

Finland has adopted appropriate measures to implement the EPBD into national legislation. The new legislation and decrees came into force on 1 January 2008 [1]. The EPDB has led to -30% tightening of the national regulations concerning the new buildings. The accelerated regulation development is still needed for the renovations. The regulatory framework has traditionally controlled the thermal losses of buildings. The Minister of Housing has announced that in 2012 Finland will introduce a regulation based on overall energy consumption, where the energy sources will be taken into account (primary resource factor). Finland has set minimum requirements in the National Building Code for thermal insulation and ventilation of new buildings since 1976. The requirements have been changed several times in order to improve energy efficiency in buildings. The changes have been made in 2003, when the level of the requirements was tightened by 25-30%, and in 2007, when the requirements were changed because of the implementation of the EPBD. The latest tightened (-30%) requirements were given on December 2008 and will come into force in the beginning of 2010.
