NZEB - Near Zero-Energy Buildings

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.

You can contribute to identify barriers to nZEB via the AZEB project   The AZEB project aims to show how Zero Energy Buildings can be made affordable in the whole life cycle of buildings, from design to construction and maintenance. Optimizing construction processes to fully integrate available solutions in the areas of process, technology and contracting is seen as the largest potential in lifecycle cost reduction.

This report by the Emirates Green Building Council (EmiratesGBC), offers a definition for Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEBs) to be used as a reference to support a strategy for the development of nZEBs in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This report runs in parallel to global trends of transitioning towards a low carbon, low energy economy and subsequent development of nZEBs. As part of this Report, various concepts and global implementations of Zero Buildings were reviewed by EmiratesGBC with a particular focus on nZEBs.

The benefits of the analysis at the settlement level arise not only from the larger scale compared to single buildings, but also, importantly, from looking at a system of houses with their interactions. This means, for instance, cost reduction through the deployment of renewable energy technologies at the settlement level instead of individually in each building.
