Energy efficiency in the public sector
Since 1 January 2006, all public buildings larger than 1,500 m2 must renew their energy label every five years. From 1 July 2009 this will also apply to buildings smaller than 1,500 m2.
In addition to regular energy labelling of buildings, there are a number of requirements that state institutions must comply with so as to ensure energy-efficiency in state institutions. These requirements have been described in a circular.
The Danish Regions and Local Government Denmark have entered into agreements that regions and municipalities are to comply with the same requirements as the state regarding energy efficiency.
