NZEB

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.

Abstract: Innovative designs, such as those taking place in nearly zero-energy buildings, need to tackle Life Cycle Cost, because reducing the impact of use can carry other collateral and unexpected costs. For example, it is interesting to include the evaluation of end-of-life costs by introducing future activities of selective dismantling and waste management, to also improve the environmental performance of the demotion project.

Could you describe the project and its objectives?    The objectives of the NEWCOM project are twofold. First, we are supporting the development of training schemes for enabling construction workers and building professionals to build according to the nearly zero-energy building standard and second, we are preparing a basis for the mutual recognition of the developed training schemes.

The dashboard allows to navigate throughout the results of the multi-objective building life cycle cost and performance analysis of the CRAVEzero case studies. In particular, there are information for office buildings (ValaGard, Aspern), multi family residential buildings (Isola Nel Verde, Solallén, Alizari, Les Heliades, Greenhome, ) and single-family residential buildings (MORE).

Statistically, 40 percent of energy consumption and 36 percent of emissions come from buildings. For that reason energy efficiency has become one of the EU’s top priorities and led it to acknowledge that buildings are key to achieving its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80-95 percent by 2050.   What is a positive energy building?

The H2020 project CRAVEzero aims to increase the viability of nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (nZEB) through solutions and tools for supporting the cost reduction during the whole life cycle of the buildings. In particular, one of the backbones of the project is the CRAVEzero pinboard, a structured platform that includes all the tools and supporting materials elaborated within the project.
