SRI Delegated Action: Where are why?
According to the Article 8 of the 2018/844 recast of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, entitled «Technical building systems, electromobility and smart readiness indicator», by 31 December 2019, a delegated act should be adopted, establishing an optional common Union scheme for rating the smart readiness of buildings. The rating shall be based on an assessment of the capabilities of a building or building unit to adapt its operation to the needs of the occupant and the grid and to improve its energy efficiency and overall performance. The smart readiness of buildings shall establish the definition of the smart readiness indicator; and establish a methodology by which it is to be calculated.
The technical and policy making processes for establishing the SRI – that have developed over the last three years – are approaching completion. Under current assumptions, the legal acts establishing the SRI scheme and detailing the technical modalities for implementing it should be adopted by the end of October 2020.
