An empirical study of energy use in the residential sector of the five biggest EU countries by population (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK) and Sweden from 1990 to 2015 has been carried out to determine the impact that efficiency policies have had. Preliminary results have isolated the effects of (i) energy efficiency focused building codes and (ii) general efficiency policies, and have found that both have had a significant impact on reducing energy demand. A model has been created that will allow further exploration of policies specifically related to the EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD).
