Concept and objectives:
Thermal insulation of construction and building elements has become the most important measure to enhance energy savings in new and existing building stock. Stricter regulations (such as 2019/2021 EU Buildings Directive) have led to the use of huge thicknesses of standard insulation, almost always EPS and XPS.
An efficient use of a porous cementitious system as a thermal insulation material depends mainly on its air content.

Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) is a well-tested and successful tool that has been helping building owners reach their energy and climate targets more quickly than with traditional implementation of energy saving measures.
Still there is potential for more use of EPC to reach unrealised saving potential in public sector.

In view of the ambitious 2050 full decarbonisation target and the need to reduce the initial and operational costs of buildings, the revival of the ‘neighbourhood’ concept is greatly endorsed in recent years.
The ZERO-PLUS project has developed a method and accompanying tools to provide an overarching solution to the barriers for the successful construction of new residential Net Zero Energy Settlements (NZES).
