Promoting Integrated Energy Design and SEAPs among European Communities: AIDA project

Share this Post:

The Integrated Energy Design (IED) concept is vital for a successful implementation of nearly zero-energy buildings (nZEB) involving different professions on achieving energy performance requirements since the very beginning of the design process of a building. The IED approach is used as a starting point to promote nZEBs within Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs) and within other municipal energy roadmaps such as Climate Alliance and e5-communities in Austria. Such SEAP development has been initiated within the frame of AIDA, a project co-funded by the European Commission. The project supports building professionals and local authorities all over Europe in designing nearly zero-energy buildings. AIDA offers action tailored to these target groups, such as study tours to innovative buildings, best practice-learning from operational success stories, presentation of innovative design software and active support for municipalities.
