Ecofys - Towards Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings, report, Frontpage

During 2012, a consortium led by Ecofys undertook a study for the European Commission to provide more guidance to Member States and the Commission with regards to the implementation of the requirements for nearly zero-energy buildings under the Energy Performance Building Directive (EPBD). The study identified benchmarks for nZEBs, developed an analytical framework for evaluating the national plans (including a reporting template) and investigated the convergence between cost optimal levels and nearly zero-energy buildings.
