The Energy Efficiency Certificate of a Building or Building Unit reflects its Energy Ranking, in order to allow the owners or tenants to compare and evaluate its energy performance. It is the attestation of the inspection, study and evaluation of the property by the engineer. It classifies buildings in energy efficiency classes, while giving an estimate of the annual energy consumption and the carbon dioxide emissions. It is accompanied by recommendations for the energy performance improvement of the property. It is necessary for the renting, sale, transfer of a non-incomplete property, as well as after the completion of the construction of each new or radically renovated building and is valid for 10 years from the date of its issuance. [If the building undergoes a radical renovation or addition to an extent that affects its energy performance, the validity of the building energy performance certificate expires at the time of completion of the renovation or addition.]
It should be noted that in case of non-issuance of this certificate a fine of 1000-10.000 euros is imposed against the legal debtor
