Anyone know of the requirement for a "Bilan Thermique" in Vaud?

We are renovating a house in the Lausanne region and are changing very little of the facade (just adding a few solar panels). Otherwise, any external changes will not change the "look" of the house. However, since we are replacing the old roof (with a similar roof tile) and windows (with the same colour and style window) we have to submit plans to the commune. So we paid a ridiculous fee to an architect to draw some plans up for submission to the commune.

The architect is now saying we need to pay for a "Bilan Thermique" report of the property to submit with the plans. Apparently this is a cantonal requirement. My google search found nothing about this except some companies advertising their services in the area (apparently it's going to be an extra cost of 500-1000Chf!).

So, it seems we need to have a report done on how thermal efficient the house is, BEFORE we put in the new windows, roof, solar panels, extra insulation. Seems daft to me. Anyone else come across this requirement? If so, are there any loopholes to get out of it?

I think this page explains it. http://www.vd.ch/fr/themes/environne...de-construire/

Seems that for building permits, seems to include renovations, one would need to have certain energy dossiers.

Also info here. http://www.crde.ch/

Thanks runningdeer. I'd give you some rep if I had any to give.

Now for me to wade through all the technical info on the links you gave me. Thanks again.
