Very low energy buildings

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.

The Low Energy Building Database is a repository of low-energy building information created to support the planning and development of low energy new build and refurbishment with exemplary case studies. This tool was developed following the Retrofit for Future (RfF) programme launched in the UK about ten years ago, when £17m have been allocated by the government for increasing the energy efficiency of the building stock.

Supporting designers in the early stages of designing Plus Energy Buildings is strategic to ensure load reduction while still considering the household practices and enhancing the indoor environmental quality. To achieve this target, it is necessary to make use of effective building energy modeling with a clear view of the simulation results, thus allowing effective communication between the design team and the involved disciplines/stakeholders.

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.
