Energy Conservation Regulations / Heat Act

For the first time, the EnEV adopts an integrative approach to buildings and plant engineering. In addition to maintaining a maximum permissible transmission heat loss, the annual primary energy requirement must be maintained and the plant expenditure figure determined. This stipulates calculation procedures according to German standard DIN V 18599. Due to the high requirements for new buildings, the evaluation and selection of the technical equipment has become increasingly more important. Requirements relating to thermal insulation in summer are also specified for the first time.

Through the Energy Conservation Regulations (EnEV) an integral planning process has become essential, because in addition to the economic and aesthetical assessment in each planning stage the effects on the legal requirements must be considered. These requirements are further raised by complying with the Renewable Energies Heat Act (Heat Act, EEWärmeG). In the current version of the law, the building owner is required to cover a fixed proportion of the calculated heating and cooling demand from renewable energy sources. This requirement underlines the fact that it will be difficult to comply with the legal framework without a comprehensive energy concept.

What you gain

With our range of competencies we can offer you an integrated view of the building physics and energy supply as well as a list of the proofs required by a nationally accredited expert in acoustic and thermal insulation. We cover the entire spectrum of buildings, from non-residential to residential and from new constructions to existing buildings.

In addition we conduct energetic inspections of your ventilation systems according to § 12 of the current Energy Conservation Regulations (EnEV).

These integrated solutions from a single company ensure that interface losses are minimised and your costs reduced.
