Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV) [Germany]

The Energy Saving Ordinance (EnEV) is part of German commercial administrative law and stipulates standard construction requirements to achieve efficient operational energy demand that property developers must observe in their buildings or construction projects. The energy requirements defined in the EnEV apply to almost all buildings that are heated or air conditioned. In addition to heating and air conditioning equipment, the stipulations also relate, in particular, to the thermal insulation standard of the building.
