The Netherlands has fallen behind other European countries when it comes to energy performance
The European Architectural Barometer has shown that architects from several countries act differently when it comes to energy performance. Architects in Poland and Belgium are the front runners in this case and are already dealing with obligatory guarantees for energy performance of buildings. The Netherlands are clearly lagging behind the other European countries. Obligatory guarantees is in this country something for the longer term. These are some of the conclusions of the European Architectural Barometer report, a quarterly market research among 1,600 architects in eight European countries. This quarter (Q2 2015) this subject will again be part of the European Architectural Barometer.
Poland and Belgium are the frontrunners
Over the last years, energy performance and environmental awareness has been a hot topic in Europe. Buildings are responsible for 40% of the energy consumption in Europe. The construction sector keeps expanding and therefore the energy consumption will increase. The 2010 Energy Performance of Buildings Directive is the main legislation of the European Union when it comes to reducing the energy consumption of buildings. One of the conclusions of the European Architectural Barometer is that architects from several countries act differently when it comes to energy performance. The front running countries Poland and Belgium are already dealing with these guarantees while the Dutch architects consider this as a long term development. This quarter this subject will again be part of the European Architectural Barometer. The results of this barometer will show how the opinion of the European architects has changed in a year time.
