Since 1998, the Swiss Federal Office for Energy has worked in partnership with cantons to promote SIA building code (Norm SIA 380/1) and the Minergie label family. The standard, SIA 380, has been updated several times, most recently in 2016. It sets an overall limit on energy use for heating, hot water, ventilation and air-conditioning of 16 kWh/m2 for new and 24 KWh/m2 for renovated buildings. Minergie is a voluntary energy-efficient construction standard for both new and renovated buildings. The label is granted for buildings 20% below the actual standard.
