Since 2012, buildings that are owned by state and municipal institutions, agencies and enterprises and are either new or subject to major renovation have been required to meet the renewable energy requirements for buildings. These requirements as well as a defined implementation process have to be met by the government and its authorised institutions. Measures for the increased use of renewable energy in buildings have to be included in municipal action plans for renewable energy sources (Chapter X Art. 50 Law on Energy from Renewable Sources).
