IPEEC’s Buildings Energy Efficiency Task Group (BEET) has just released its seventh publication on energy efficiency in the buildings sector, BEET 7, which focuses on zero energy or emissions buildings (ZEBs). While the precise term varies, ZEBs generally refer to highly efficient buildings that use renewable technology to produce as much energy as they consume over the course of a year. The difficulty lies in the variety of metrics used to establish ‘zero’ energy or emissions, in addition to different energy consumption and production boundaries that make direct comparisons hard.

This report is elaborated by the International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation (IPEEC) on request of the Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate (MEF), with the aim to: identify key areas in the building efficiency sector that would benefit from additional international collaboration;develop options for metrics to gauge progress in building energy performance and resilience.
