Energy performance certificates for buildings and inspections of power facilities

image

The Czech Energy Management Act (No. 406/2000 Coll.) places many obligations on energy consumers, among them the necessity of inspections of air conditioning systems, boilers and buildings’ energy performance certificates.
Inspection of air-conditioning systems
Act No. 406/2000 Coll. on Energy Management and its implementing Decree No 277/2007 Coll., on the Control of Air Conditioning Systems places an obligation on the owners and operators of buildings with air-conditioning systems where rated input of the drive for the cooling source is greater than 12 kW to ensure regular inspections of these systems every four years, taking effect from 1 January 2009. This obligation for all of the above specified sources should be met by the end of 2012, and in the case of non-compliance, sanctions may be imposed of sums up to CZK 200,000.
Inspection of boilers
Act No. 406/2000 Coll. on Energy Management and its implementing Decree No. 276/2007 Coll. on Checking the Efficiency of Boilers requires the owners and operators of boilers used for heating buildings with a rated output of 20 to 200 kW inclusive and over 200 kW to ensure the regular or one-off (boilers older than 15 years) inspection of these boilers at yearly intervals, with a maximum period of once every 4 years depending on the boiler output and the fuel used with effect from 1 January 2007. In the event of failure to comply with this obligation, similarly to the inspection of air conditioning systems, penalties of up to CZK 200 000 may be imposed.
Energy performance certificates for buildings
A building’s energy performance certificate provides the building’s users with similar information to the energy labels on selected appliances, which have now been in use for many years. Involving energy consumption for heating, ventilation, lighting, preparing domestic hot water and cooling, the information is provided to users in a detailed numerical formulation in the printout report, but also in a simple and intuitive graphic representation. The responsibilities related to processing an energy performance certificate for buildings are the following:
 The builder, owner of the building or the owners association is required

  1. to ensure that an energy performance certificate is processed during the construction of new buildings or during major changes to completed buildings,
  2. to ensure the processing of a certificate for a building used by a public authority,
  3. to ensure the processing of a certificate for a residential or administrative building

In addition, there will be an obligation to issue a  building energy performance certificate relating to all buildings that become the subject of lease or sale.

We perform inspections of boilers, air conditioning systems and elaborate energy performance certificates for buildings with regard to customers’ needs, and always try to create the greatest added value for the customer – to identify cost-effective potential savings, not merely to meet the legal requirements.

Energy performance certificate of the National Technical Museum

The project’s aim was to issue an energy performance certificate for the National Technical Museum in Prague. The certificate was drawn up in the stage of completing the reconstruction, hence no new cost-saving measures were proposed. After reconstruction, the building’s energy performance will be class C – compliant, and will meet the requirements of the applicable legislation. At the same time, the energy label for the building’s exterior surface was elaborated, which confirmed that the enveloping constructions are compliant in terms of the current standard requirements.
