Energy Efficiency Certificates for Existing Buildings
On 1 June 2013, the new Spanish Royal Decree on Energy Efficiency Certification for Existing Buildings will come into effect. In accordance with this decree, all property owners who sell or rent out their property will have to provide the buyer or tenant with the corresponding Energy Efficiency Certificate (Certificado de Eficiencia Energética). The aim is to promote energy efficiency by providing objective information to prospective buyers and tenants.
The certificate must be issued by an accredited control agency (Organismo/Entidad de Control) or qualified third-party specialist. Certificates are valid for 10 years.
The Insulae Sur Consultores team includes technical staff specialising in energy efficiency certification. These experts have completed specialist training courses run by the Spanish Institute for Energy Saving and Diversification (IDAE). Our specialists use the tools recommended by the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism, such as the CE3 and CE3X computer programs.
