Abstract: The main objectives of improving energy performance of buildings, which each EU country has to achieve, is presented in EPBD, but the ways to achieve these goals must be found by each country paying attention to the climatic conditions, internal climate of the premises, the country's energy and economic situation and construction traditions. Lithuania is in a cold climate zone, has limited resources for solar, wind and hydro power generation, and creating energy performance requirement the first challenge was always to reduce the energy demand of a building. According to the COST Optimal methodology, minimum optimal requirements were set for the energy efficiency of buildings and their engineering systems, additional ways of reducing energy in the building were found, and additional verification indicators were introduced to ensure efficient design and use of buildings.
Motivation of introducing these measures and the impact on the energy performance of buildings are discussed in detail in the presented article.
