Appliances burning gaseous fuels
CEN is developing European Standards that cover the conversion of gaseous fuels and their uses in various types of installations, components and materials to be incorporated in or linked to applications and installations. 'Installation' is considered in so far as it has an influence on appliances and controls.
European experts and others involved in the work, go to the 'Sector Forum Gas Utilization' pages.

Energy Performance of Buildings
CEN has developed a set of 31 standards to support the implementation of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) 2002/91/EC, after it became law on 4 January 2003.
Together with the EPBD recast directive 2010/31 EU, the European Commission issued in December 2010 a Standardisation Mandate M/480 to CEN, CENELEC and ETSI. CEN is now preparing a second generation set of CEN-EPBD standards.
More information on CEN work and other initiatives linked to the EPBD are available.
