It was already realized when the Energy Directive came into force that the implementation schedule would be difficult to keep. It has also been seen that a great number of countries have been forced to use all available methods and excuses to postpone introduction. Despite this, a number of countries have not been able to meet their obligations within the stipulated extended time limits. In Sweden, this has mainly been due to the limited availability of qualified and accredited inspectors and that the time required to train and accredit them has exceeded that allowed by the time schedule. When it comes to property owners who require energy certificates for their buildings, it is natural to ask what will happen, if they do not complete the stipulated inspections and assessments within the time limits. This and other issues are discussed in the book.
