What are the new regulations?

The Act covers:

  • Introducing changes to the requirements related to the control of heating systems and air-conditioning systems, extending the range of systems with a capacity of over 70 kW covered by the obligation to control.
  • Enabling universal access to the basic information contained in energy performance certificates collected in the central register of the energy performance of buildings.
  • Introducing an obligation for investors (including developers and individual investors) to attach building energy performance certificates to the notice of completion of construction or an application for an occupancy permit.
  • Introducing the obligation to install automation and control systems in certain buildings, in accordance with EU regulations.

This is not the end – the new law introduces the obligation to prepare energy performance certificates for each single-family or multi-family building.

The regulatory impact assessment shows that the price of such a certificate will be approximately PLN 300, but the final cost will depend on several factors – e.g. the type of heating, hot water, ventilation and air conditioning system used. “Nevertheless, probably in the vast majority of cases [cena – red.] is not higher than PLN 300 “- we read.

The new regulations are to enter into force six months from the date of announcement.
