Abstract—In our time, controlling energy consumption is a very important issue for the preservation of terrestrial natural resources. To face these dangers, the states are committed to reduce their consumption by encouraging, in particular, the renewal of their housing stock.

Morocco is highly dependent on imported energy. Over 91% of energy supplied comes from abroad [1]. However, renewable energy in this country may represent significant deposits as an Alternative energy.
Morocco has set the goal of introducing new methods of sustainable construction and positioning as a leader in this field in the African continent [2]. Efforts are therefore focused on developing an energy efficiency policy for better use of energy in all areas of activity, particularly in the building sector, in order to streamline and improve energy consumption face to the growing energy needs.
In our thesis project, we propose a procedure for the diagnosis of energy performance in the building in Morocco, to be integrated into the building permit circuit. We will define the new actors to involve in this procedure and their roles, as well as the utility of energy labels for the building. The final objective of this proposed procedure is to reduce the primary energy consumption of buildings and gradually introduce energy efficiency techniques for a rational use of energy in Morocco.
