The Horizon 2020 co-funded project CRAVEzero (Cost Reduction and market Acceleration for Viable nearly zero-Energy buildings) focuses on proven and new approaches to cost reduction of Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEBs) at all stages of the life cycle. The main goal is to identify and eliminate the extra-costs for NZEBs related to processes, technologies, building operation, and to promote innovative business models taking into account the cost-effectiveness for all the stakeholders.
Main project pillars are the CRAVEzero pinboard as a structured framework organising all needed information and data to build:
- an effective low life cycle cost (LCC) NZEB business model;
- reliable lifecycle cost databases with cost reduction potentials in processes; and
- technologies, methodologies, robust solutions and business models for low LCC NZEBs.
Costs reduction will indeed cover all stages of the process, from urban planning, to building design, construction, until the building operation, while ensuring high building overall quality, considering in particular architecture and indoor environmental.
