Energy efficiency of housing will be calculated according to the new rules
The Ministry of Construction and Housing and Public Utilities of Russia have developed a draft resolution, establishing new energy efficiency requirements and the procedure for determining its class for residential buildings. The document, developed for the implementation of the «regulatory guillotine», mechanism will reduce the cost of construction and further costs, associated with operation.
«A draft resolution is developed for ensuring power efficiency of buildings, buildings, constructions, ensuring energy saving and increase in power efficiency in housing stock, his realization will provide reduction of cost of construction for 10-15% and also reduction of operating costs – for 20-30%», – it is said in the explanatory note to the document.
The developers noted that at the moment, for a reliable actual assessment, statistical data of thermal and electric energy consumption meters for three to four heating seasons are needed. At the same time, the cost of one such study exceeds tens of millions of rubles. The new rules will reduce the cost of conducting studies of actual energy consumption in residential buildings.
