Energy Certificate

Since 1 June 2013, it has been compulsory for all homes and premises that are going to be leased or sold to have an energy certificate (Royal Decree 235/2013). This applies equally to new constructions and existing buildings/homes/premises.

The certificate must be issued by an authorised technician (engineers, engineering technicians, architects or builders). The authorised certification programs can be downloaded free of charge by technicians from the Ministry of Industry website.
