Updated the information related to the energy efficiency in buildings including the new legislation in Spain (published last 13th April 2013) with the partial transposition of EPBD 2002/91/CE concerning to the energy certification and labeling of existing buildings.
Welcome to the website of the European
MOVIDA aims to improve the energy efficiency of HVAC systems
for both the domestic sector and the tertiary sector. The
project aims to change the mode of carrying out inspections
adapting or to the new European regulations on energy
efficiency in buildings*, complementing the tasks of
operating and maintaining with a study of energy efficiency.
*The European Performance of Building Directive,
Directive 2010/31/EU “Recast”, requires that Member States
organize inspections of Boilers and of Air Conditioning
systems, to reduce energy consumption and limiting carbon
dioxide emissions, and that these inspections be carried out
in an independent manner by qualified and/or accredited
experts, whether operating as sole traders or employed by
public or private enterprise bodies.
The EPBD) Directive requires that the inspection report
contains also a comparison of the energy performance of the
system inspected with that of the best available system
feasible and a system of similar type for which all relevant
components achieve the level of energy performance required
by the applicable legislation, and recommendations for the
cost-effective improvement of the energy performance of the
system of the building or parts thereof.
The MOVIDA project wants to test a new approach based on
service staff already operating commercially on systems,
performing O&M, or environmental controls (chimney sweepers)
or energy auditing. On the other side the approach provides
an added value to existing services, as advice and
recommendations are supplied to the clients.
MOVIDA, short for “MOVing from Inspection to Domestic Advice
by service companies”, is co-funded by the European Union
under the Intelligent Energy – Europe programme, grant
agreement no. IEE/10/357/SI2.589425 and runs from May 2011
until November 2013.
