The region of Navarra is building over 500 nearly zero-energy building (NZEB) units to provide affordable and energy efficient homes for their citizens.
Nearly zero-energy buildings have very low energy consumption due to their design and the materials used in their construction and reduce energy consumption by 75% compared to standard buildings. The project will also contribute towards social integration and urban regeneration through the provision of affordable rental housing.
