The Horizon 2020 project ZERO-PLUS aims at the development and implementation of a comprehensive, cost-effective system for Net Zero Energy (NZE) settlements. Within this context, ZERO-PLUS has produced the document titled "Effective monitoring protocols to be implemented in the outdoor areas of each settlement and an overall report about technical details and motivation of the selected procedures".
It deals with:
- the description of the existing monitoring protocols and technologies for energy consumption/production and environmental conditions in outdoor areas;
- the development of dedicated monitoring protocols for the measurement of energy needs, savings, and production in the common areas of the four case study near zero energy (NZE) settlements;
- the development of dedicated monitoring protocols for the assessment of the real microclimate conditions in the outdoor common areas of the four case study NZE settlements; and
- the preparatory activities for future work in ZERO-PLUS under this subject.

The ZERO-PLUS project: “Achieving near Zero and Positive Energy Settlements in Europe using Advanced Energy Technology”, funded under the EC H2020 program, aims at the development and implementation of a comprehensive, cost-effective system for Net Zero Energy (NZE) settlements. The system is composed of innovative solutions for the building envelope, for building energy generation and management, and for energy management at the settlement level. The developed solutions will be implemented in four different demonstration projects throughout the EU, with varying climates and building types. The results of their implementation will be monitored and analysed. More information can be found at: http://www.zeroplus.org/
