This measure includes incorporating the Directive EPBD – 2010/31/EU on Energy Efficiency of Buildings into national legislation and ensuring its enforcement. Therefore, the criteria for the consumption of energy in buildings will be implemented through construction norms and certification. Even though current construction standards envisage energy efficient characteristics, it fails to set out mandatory indicators of energy efficiency for buildings. 

In accordance with the energy efficiency standards, the State should prepare a sample construction projects for thermal insulation of exterior building enclosure for various climate conditions and according to regions, and make the model project publicly available.
