Terms like "net zero energy", "zero net energy", "net zero carbon" or "EQuilibrium" buildings are in widespread use. But these terms have different meaning and are poorly understood, even though several IEA countries have adopted them as goal of their building energy policies.   IEA SHC project "Task 40" aims at filling this gap with a clear definition and international agreement on the measures of building performance that could inform "zero energy" building policies, programmes and industry adoption.

Hannover, 22.11.2012 – More than half of the overall world population is living in urban areas - with rising tendency. The permanently increasing urbanization can be driven to more sustainability by ecological concepts for mobility, energy-efficient buildings and intelligent energy supply. Intelligent energy supply had also been the main subject of the well-attended “Sustainable Energy in Buildings and Urban Areas” Symposium (SEBUA 2012) which took place in Kusadasi near Izmir/Turkey from October 14 – 20, 2012.
