'Luxembourg': which legal obligations for the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)?

If you wish to sell or acquire a property in Luxembourg, you are probably wondering what the regulations are regarding the energetic passport of a residence? Through this article, Engel & Völkers Luxembourg answers the questions we are frequently asked.

What is the EPC?

The energy performance certificate (EPC), also known as an energy passport, is a certification that defines the energy consumption of a home. Thus, even without expert knowledge, the owner or tenant can assess the energy quality of the property.

Is the EPC mandatory?

The issuance of the energy pass is a legal obligation. There is a precise regulation defined by the Grand-Ducal regulation dated 30 November 2007 concerning the "energy performance of residential buildings". However, it does not entail any obligation to renovate the property. The EPC then remains valid for 10 years after the day it is established.

How to obtain the energy passport of a property?

All experts approved by the Ministry of Economy may establish the EPC of a property. The list of recognized professionals is available on the website: 


What energy requirements for new properties?

In Luxembourg, since 2017, new housing projects have had to meet almost zero energy consumption (NZEB = Nearly Zero Energy Building). This generally corresponds to the AAA energy classes.
