Description: 
For new building projects with a surface of more than 1000 m² Law No. 372/2005 recommends the consideration of using renewable energy sources for decentralised energy supply in the planning process (art. 10 Law No. 372/2005). Nevertheless, this is a recommendation rather than obligation. The use of renewable energy sources in new buildings as recommended by Law No. 372/2005 shall be considered in the feasibility study in the course of the licensing process (art. 10 par. 3 Law No. 372/2005). Thus, the recommendation is addressed to the applicant for a building licence.
