The building sector consumes around 30–40 per cent of the primary energy in most developed countries. The importance of labelling buildings as a national strategy for energy efficiency is well recognized worldwide. The last 10–15 years have seen an emergence of programmes in different parts of the world. As seen in the United States, European Union, South America and Asia, there is a collection of rating systems or tools internationally, designed with the intention of evaluating the design, construction and operation of buildings. This study presents an overview and critical reflection on the progress on building energy labelling techniques in recent years. The scope of labelling, methodology and methods of implementation are discussed in detail.
