Energy Label
An energy label consists of the energy label itself and an “energy plan” and an “energy plan & documentation”. Altogether they form the “energy report”.

The energy label tells about a property’s theoretical consumption of electricity, water and CO2.

The energy label is a standardized and documented settlement of a property’s energy condition compared to other buildings – and with suggestions for improvements that can improve the energy condition.

This energy “scheme” has the purpose of improving energy efficiency in buildings.

The building is given an energy label at least once every 5th year. If the energy label is more than 3 years old, the building has to have the energy label renewed when the property is offered for sale.
