Regulations on Thermal Behaviour of Buildings

Last updated: 5 November 2017
The Regulations on Characteristics of the Thermal Behaviour of Buildings (RCCTE) address energy consumption levels in buildings defining design rules for all new residential accommodation and services buildings without centralised air conditioning. These Regulations define the requirements for new residential and small service buildings, namely in terms of wall and floor insulation, types of glass coverings and surfaces, limiting heat loss and controlling excessive solar gains. These regulations set limits on the energy requirements for air-conditioning and hot water production, making it compulsory to install solar energy systems and favouring the use of other renewable energy sources.
