Energy frameworks for new construction

Unless otherwise required, the Danish Building and Property Agency will execute new buildings in the best overall economic energy class. The Danish Building and Property Agency will work with:

  • Requirements for energy frameworks
  • Energy Framework 2015
  • Energy Framework 2020

Requirements for energy frameworks

The energy framework for the concrete building is agreed with the customer. As a starting point, the Danish Building and Property Agency follows the energy framework, which the local plans of the municipality require. In 2012, the Danish Building and Property Agency has used Energy Framework 2015 as a basis for decisions regarding new buildings. In addition to this, the agency also completes a smaller number of buildings in energy class 2020, zero energy and passive house standard in order to gain experience. The agency will use experience with buildings in low energy classes to establish clear guidelines for requirements of energy frameworks in the future.
