Already today buildings can be realised in the nearly zero and plus energy standard. These buildings achieve extremely low energy demands and low CO2 emissions and can be operated economically. For this reason, the motivation in the CRAVEzero project is not only based on the energy characteristics of buildings, but also on their life-cycle costs.

Cost optimal and nearly zero energy performance levels are principles initiated by the European Union’s (EU) Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, which was recast in 2010 and amended 2018. These will be major drivers in the construction sector in the next few years because all new buildings in the EU from 2021 onwards are expected to be nearly zero energy buildings (nZEB).

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.
