The revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive 2018/884 introduces a "Smart Readiness Indicator". The SRI will measure the buildings' capacity to use new technologies and electronic systems to adapt to the needs of the consumer, optimise its operation and interact with the grid. The European Commission has asked a consortium to develop the SRI. A first report was published in 2018.  The second study should prepare for the adoption of a delegated act by the end of 2019. 

At the end of 2017, the European Commission issued a standardisation request with the objective to have a European standardisation deliverable on the use of flammable refrigerants, in particular those classified as A3, in refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump equipment by November 2020/February 2021.

Possible role of market operators reduced to cooperation in awareness campaigns

The initial draft by the Commission provided for a possible active role for organisations representing businesses. The text that is now discussed in the trialogue meetings (Commission, Council and Parliament) is merely referring to raising awareness and providing advice and guidance in relation to EU harmonisation legislation in the framework of a cooperation between market surveillance authorities and organisations representing businesses. 

Energy Efficiency Directive, Renewable Energy Sources Directive and Governance of the Energy Union published

As announced in GEN – 973.00, these revised directives have been published in the Official Journal on 21 December 2018. The entry into force of theses texts was on 24 December 2018.
