NZEB - Near Zero-Energy Buildings

Chris Hughes from SEAI summarises in this presentation the current energy performance requirements for buildings in Ireland and the Irish energy efficiency targets. Part of the planned tightenings is that in 2013 Ireland will implement a voluntary carbon neutral framework and in 2016 it will introduce a low energy standard for buildings other than dwellings.

Hans Erhorn vom Fraunhofer-Institut für Bauphysik fasst in der Präsentation die Randbedingungen und die mögliche Art der Bilanzierung des Niedrigstenergiegebäudes zusammen. Als Ergebnis einer Studie im Auftrag des BBSR schlagen die Projektpartner Fraunhofer-Institut für Bauphysik, IB Hauser, ITG und Schiller Engineering  Bewertungsparameter, Bilanzraum und Bilanzzeitraum für die deutsche Definition des Niedrigstenergiegebäudes vor. Dazu wurden u.a. eine Marktanalyse durchgeführt und eine Strategie zur Steigerung der Marktdurchdringung vorgeschlagen.

The aim was to discuss with the stakeholders of the housing and energy sector and with the Committee of the Regions members, MEPs and Commission ‘s representative, the opportunities that this Directive offers to reduce energy consumption and energy poverty. The conference helped to inform European decision makers of the reality at local level by drawing on information gathered through the POWER HOUSE EUROPE big Green Housing Exchange project financed by the IEE programme.
