Actually entered the new process next month. That was postponed at the request of industry associations because they wanted to be better prepared for the changes. But not adjusted as the VEH would like.
Reason for the VEH to once again bring under attention, because the association is to disagree. “A ‘new’ label does not improve,” said spokesman Hans André de la Porte. “The way of measuring is almost the same, only the property owner is more expensive.”
Moreover, such energy says little, he says. The new energy chasing people only on costs and offers no additional perspective for the sustainability of your home, according to the VEH.
The government is now not going to change the plans. A spokesman Kajsa Ollongren Minister of the Interior announced that the government will indeed be better another way of measuring. “A consultant, the consumption of a home with, can deliver better advice and see what else might.”
The new label is like the old valid for ten years.
