Directive 2010/31/EU (EPBD) indicates that EU Member States must ensure that by 2021 all new buildings, and already by 2019 all new public buildings, are nearly zero-energy buildings (NZEBs). Article 2 of the EPBD defines the term NZEB as a building with a very high energy performance and a nearly zero or very low amount of energy required, which itself is covered to a very significant extent from renewable sources.
