Currently, buildings account for 40% of total energy consumption and around 75% of them are energy inefficient, with an annual renovating rate around 0.4-1.2%. EU has established legislative frameworks as EPBD (directive 2010/31/EU and update) and EED (2012/27/EU) in order to increase the energy performance of the buildings and has required the nearly zero energy building (nZEB) target for public buildings starting from January 2019.
