Abstract

EPBD Implementation Status in Italy in 2016. Decree 192/20051, modified by Legislative Decree 311/20062, set the basis for the EPBD implementation in Italy. It was followed by a number of complementary legal acts updating the minimum requirements for buildings, building components and technical building systems, while extending the calculation to cooling and lighting systems and providing guidelines for energy performance certification (2009) and defining requirements for assessors as well as specifications for the inspection of technical building systems (2013). Law 90/20133 implemented Directive 2010/31/EU, introducing significant changes to the first 2005 implementation. In June 2015, three inter-ministerial decrees (26 June 2015) have completed the EPBD transposition, which also established stricter minimum requirements for new buildings and major renovations, defined NZEB as well as rules for taking RES in buildings into account, and provided new national guidelines for EPCs. Italian regions and autonomous provinces (a total of 21 authorities) have final jurisdiction in energy topics. The recent legislation provided, with a unanimous consensus from these authorities, an advanced harmonisation of the EPBD implementation all over the national territory and took implementation a step forward: The six regional/provincial authorities that had independently transposed the EPBD before October 2015 (Liguria, Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Val d’Aosta, Piedmont, Lombardy and the provinces of Trento and Bozen) have a two-year period to fully adapt their EPC system to that required by national law; that has already occurred for most of them. Five more regions/autonomous provinces have established their EPC database since 2014 (a present total of 15 out of 21). A national information system for EPCs and for the inspection of technical heating/cooling systems is being created, although regions are still in charge of managing their own databases and for related monitoring and control.
