NZEB - Near Zero-Energy Buildings

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

Concept:   Based on EU environmental requirements, all new buildings from 2021 (public buildings from 2019) must be nearly-zero-energy buildings (nZEBs), which means a building with very high energy performance.

The concept of zero energy settlements is relatively new as, until recently, the focus of EU policy was mainly on the building scale. These days, in view of the ambitious 2050 full decarbonisation target, the revival of the ‘neighborhood’ concept and the need to reduce the initial and operational costs the benefits from designing at the settlement level have been put in the spotlight.

In this booklet, the results of the ZERO-PLUS are described emphasizing on the four case studies (UK, Italy, France, Cyprus), which all have now been constructed, commissioned and occupied. The case studies are in the monitoring phase where data about their energy environmental performance are being collected. These data will be used for the verification of the settlements’ performance.
