This study explores how meps have already been successful in many countries and regions, and offers a practical guide to their implementation to achieve the 2030 target in eu member states. Inspired by 15 different countries and regions, the study examines examples where meps have been rolled-out. It shows options on designing meps, including data gathering and indicator choices, and different approaches to defining “worst performing” buildings. The study then explores the application of meps on non-residential buildings in germany and concludes that the instrument can lead to significant emission and energy savings.
