The H2020 REVALUE project has finished. Over the past 4 years, the project partners researched the relation between the value of residential real estate and its energy efficiency.  A greater awareness of what investments could improve both a property’s energy efficiency and its value would help to build a business case that could accelerate energy efficiency improvements in Europe´s housing stock. Much of Europe’s housing stock is currently both aged and energy inefficient.

IPEEC’s Buildings Energy Efficiency Task Group (BEET) has just released its seventh publication on energy efficiency in the buildings sector, BEET 7, which focuses on zero energy or emissions buildings (ZEBs). While the precise term varies, ZEBs generally refer to highly efficient buildings that use renewable technology to produce as much energy as they consume over the course of a year. The difficulty lies in the variety of metrics used to establish ‘zero’ energy or emissions, in addition to different energy consumption and production boundaries that make direct comparisons hard.
