‘Principles for Nearly Zero Energy Buildings’, 9th November 2010, 14.00-17.30 European legislation requires that from 2020 all new buildings are nearly zero-energy buildings without proposing a concrete definition, leaving a number of uncertainties, specifically on the ambition level of such buildings in terms of energy consumption and CO2 emissions. This study analyses key principles for a proper definition of nearly zero energy buildings based on existing concepts across Europe and in line with the objectives and aims of the EU policy.
