List of authorized issuers of energy performance certificates

Two types of energy performance certificates in Slovenia

The calculated energy performance certificate may be issued for each building, while it is mandatory for residential and new buildings. It is calculated at a constant internal temperature of 20 degrees Celsius. Energy indicators that are used in this card are (1) the annual heat required to heat the building per unit of usable area of ​​the building, (2) the annual energy input to the operation of the building per unit of usable area of ​​the building, and (3) the annual CO2 emissions from the operation of the building per unit of usable area of ​​the building.
The measured energy performance certificate is reserved for existing non-residential buildings, as the sale of such property does not substantially alter the way a building is used. Its manufacture requires less work. Energy indicators measured are (1) the annual energy input, intended for conversion into heat per unit of usable area, (2 ) the annual electricity consumption due to the operation of the building per unit of usable area , and (3 ) the annual CO2 emissions from the operation of buildings per unit of usable floor area .

In buildings with several units, the energy performance certificate may be issued for the entire building. Instead of submitting a certificate for each part of the building a certificate for the entire building can be submitted. Apartment building with at least four condominium units, which was built until 1980, must obtain an energy performance certificate no later than 2015.
