LOW- ENERGY BUILDING- ENERGY
Low-energy building-Energy efficiency label
This «low-energy building» label fixes primary energy
consumption in a new construction at or under 50 KW/m2/year
and at or under 80 KW/m2/year in a renovated property (with
variations depending on the climatic zone and the altitude). This
label imposes an air-tightness test and should be compulsory for all
new dwellings from the end of 2012 onwards.
Building energy performance diagnostics
The Building Energy Performance diagnostic is compulsory for
the sale or rental of any dwelling, providing an estimate of energy
consumption and of greenhouse gas emission as well as useful
information for targeting efficient improvement works.
HPE EnR 2005
High Energy Performance Renewable Energy 2005
The «High Energy Performance – Renewable energy» label is
awarded to buildings complying with the demands of the High
Energy Performance label and where at least 50% of the building’s
heating is provided by a biomass installation or is derived from a
heating system using at least 60% renewable energy.
High Environmental Quality
The «High Environmental Quality» mark enables professionals
to integrate environmental protection as early as the building
design stage, with steps outlined to achieve 14 targets in the 4
domains of eco-construction, eco-management, comfort and
health. This involves the voluntary application of HEQ measures
resulting in the awarding of a certificate of French Standards for
detached houses by Céquami, an approved body delivering quality
certification for detached houses.
High Energy Performance 2005
The High Energy Performance label is awarded to newly built
dwellings whose energy consumption is at least 10% lower than
that required under the 2005 thermal regulations for buildings.
RT 2005 thermal regulations establish minimum energy
performance requirements for buildings, defined as kwhim2
primary energy year/year.
RT 2005 establishes the 3 label levels (Low energy building, High
Energy Performance, Very High Energy Performance) delivered by
Qualitel, Cerquat, Céquami, CertiVéa and Promotelec. RT 2005 will
be replaced by RT 2012 regulations, which are more demanding in
terms of energy consumption.
Very High Energy Performance 2005
The Very High Energy Performance label is awarded for energy
consumption at least 20% lower than the requirements under RT
2005 thermal regulations.
THPE EnR 2005:
Very High Energy Performance Renewable Energy 2005
The Very High Energy Performance – Renewable Energies label
will be awarded only where there is a 30% increase in performance
with regard to the RT 2005 regulations. The building must also use
at least 80% renewable energy (biomass, heat pump, solar thermal
and solar photovoltaic energy)
