The EU Commission launched its proposal for a new Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) as part of the Energy Security and Efficiency Package & Second Strategic Energy Review.

Member States had to implement the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive - EPBD (directive 2002/91/EC) by January 2006, but first assessments in 2007-2008 showed many gaps. By April 2008, the EU Commission had initiated 17 infringement cases against Member States that had failed to implement the Directive partially or completely. Consequently, the EU Commission decided to recast the Directive. The aim of the recasting was to simplify and clarify the current Directive, to strengthen certain requirements, to redefine minimum thresholds for the implementation of the Directive, and to make the role of national public sector and EU policies clearer.
