The Horizon 2020 funded project AZEB (Affordable Zero Energy Buildings) aims to achieve significant construction and lifecycle cost reductions of new NZEB’s through integral process optimisation in all construction phases. Optimising construction processes to fully integrate available solutions in the areas of process, technology and contracting is seen as the largest potential in lifecycle cost reduction. The project will create a common methodology for cost effective NZEB.   The main steps of the AZEB project are to:

Natural Ventilation in a Smart Building can remarkably reduce cooling energy demand in temperate climates—to Zero for almost the entire year.   The first part of this webinar will focus on the design and performance of natural ventilation systems through case studies of different Zero-Net-Energy (ZNE) buildings in California that aggressively adopted this design strategy, and used conventional systems. The webinar will also elaborate on what practical problems were encountered and the outcomes—i.e., what were the “lessons learned”.
