Complementary study "Technical regulation for the building stock" of the NRP "Energy"

The image shows a building façade.

The role of technical regulations in the transformation of the building stock and its integration into the future energy system (EnTeR).

The EnTeR research project analyses the effects of technical energy regulations in the transformation of the building stock and its integration into the future energy system (abbreviated to TER). Based on this, recommendations for future energy legislation are derived. Objects of research are mandatory energy regulations in the building sector. The model regulations of the Swiss cantons in the energy sector (MuKEn) are used as examples in this work, however an analysis and assessment of the current MuKEn is not part of this research project.

The main task in this first of two project phases was to identify effective measures which can guide actors (house owners, building owners, investors, users, contractors, etc.) by means of TER, answering the question: "What should be regulated?".

The results shall act as a basis to formulate effective and efficient regulations and their enforcement in a second phase of the project, which will answer the question: "How should regulations take place?"
