17 Legal framework Directive on Energy Performance in buildings (2010/31/EC) reduce CO 2 from energy for buildings, improve energy performance. Final Energy Consumption Primary energy consumption (entire value chain) On site energy production (heat pumps) = less insulation DHC = more insulation EU Carbon cap & trade system (EU ETS): >20MWy Large scale integrated DHC Small local heat production Tighter regulations Easier regulations Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) Large combustion plants >50MWy Smaller Plants Tighter limits Bad for DHC Lower requirements
