Climate and cultural based design and market valuable technology solutions for Plus Energy Houses
CULTURAL-E aims to define modular and replicable solutions for Plus Energy Houses (PEHs), accounting for climate and cultural differences, while engaging all key players involved in the building life cycle; to create comfortable, efficient, and affordable indoor environments.

REScoop MECISE is a Horizon 2020 PDA project that aims to mobilise citizens and municipalities in the transition to a more sustainable and decentralised energy system. With support from the EASME, a consortium of established energy cooperatives developed projects for renewable energy and energy efficiency. The project also set-up a financial facilitation service for energy communities and foster collaborations between energy cooperatives and local municipalities.

HOUSEFUL proposes an innovative paradigm shift towards a circular economy for the housing sector. The main goal is to develop and demonstrate an integrated systemic service (HOUSEFUL Service) composed of 11 circular solutions co-created by stakeholders in current housing value chain. The HOUSEFUL Service will aim at the circular management and efficient use of water, waste, energy and material resources for all stages of European building’s life-cycle.

This paper focuses on the definition of Nearly zero energy buildings (NZEBs) that represent one of the greatest opportunities to increase energy savings in Europe. As this term appears to be subject to different interpretations, the paper explores the NZEB literature to provide an overview of definitions. The analysis underlines inconsistencies and critical issues among them.

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.

The 5. Fachsymposium Brennpunkt Alpines Bauen is dedicated to the topic low tech. Highly efficient buildings are possible by simple, but durable, sustainable and locally available building components to satisfy the needs of users. The day after the symposium there will be a guided tour to Salzburg to visit completed projects.

Die Studie beschäftigt sich damit, welche Einsparungen durch energieeffiziente Wohnhäuser in der Praxis tatsächlich erreichbar sind. Dafür wurden die Verbrauchskennwerte energetisch sanierter und neuer Ein- und Mehrfamilienhäuser ausgewertet. Die 121 untersuchten Effizienzhäuser umfassen 50 neue Ein- und Zweifamilienhäuser, 7 neue Mehrfamilienhäuser, 46 energetisch sanierte Ein- und Zweifamilienhäuser und 18 energetisch sanierte Mehrfamilienhäuser. Alle Häuser haben eine gedämmte Gebäudehülle und eine effiziente Anlagentechnik.
