low energy buildings

L’évolution des normes PEB induit des modifications sans cesse nécessaires des techniques constructives à mettre en œuvre pour répondre à cette évolution. Aujourd’hui, toute construction ou rénovation doit être pensée et conçue en termes d’énergies renouvelables, d’économies d’énergie et de durabilité.

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.

The 5. Fachsymposium Brennpunkt Alpines Bauen is dedicated to the topic low tech. Highly efficient buildings are possible by simple, but durable, sustainable and locally available building components to satisfy the needs of users. The day after the symposium there will be a guided tour to Salzburg to visit completed projects.

The region of Navarra is building over 500 nearly zero-energy building (NZEB) units to provide affordable and energy efficient homes for their citizens. Nearly zero-energy buildings have very low energy consumption due to their design and the materials used in their construction and reduce energy consumption by 75% compared to standard buildings. The project will also contribute towards social integration and urban regeneration through the provision of affordable rental housing.
