This report, released by the ZERO-PLUS project, is on the combined energy and environmental performance of the proposed energy production and management technologies. More specifically, the document covers the final results from building modelling and simulation on the expected energy and environmental performance for eight types of residential buildings (ranging from villas to apartment buildings for social housing) across four case studies (Cyprus, France, Italy, United Kingdom).
