ZERO-PLUS project - Analysis of the market potential within the EU28 for “nearly zero-energy” buildings constructed using the concepts developed in the project


This report analyses the market potential within the EU 28 for Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings constructed using the concepts developed in the ZERO-PLUS project. The report also looks at how contracting decisions about the procurement of technologies and processes for construction are made and at the possible cost savings resulting from using the ZERO-PLUS approach.

The ZERO-PLUS project: “Achieving near Zero and Positive Energy Settlements in Europe using Advanced Energy Technology”, funded under the EC H2020 program, aims at the development and implementation of a comprehensive, cost-effective system for Net Zero Energy (NZE) settlements. The system is composed of innovative solutions for the building envelope, for building energy generation and management, and for energy management at the settlement level. The developed solutions will be implemented in four different demonstration projects throughout the EU, with varying climates and building types. The results of their implementation will be monitored and analysed. More information can be found at:
