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 project Next-Buildings (Next Zero Energy Buildings at lowest Cost by using Competitive Sustainable Technology), funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union, is about the demonstration of very low energy buildings. In all demonstrations, the ambition is net zero carbon/energy or better (active or plus-energy house).
