Preliminary results for inclusion in the AZEB methodology.

This article summarizes all solutions collected through the European Project Affordable Zero Energy Buildings (AZEB) so far (april 2018). These solutions are the building blocks for the methodology to be developed within the project.


The AZEB project runs between May 2017 and October 2019 and will create, test and disseminate a general methodology for cost reduction for nearly zero energy buildings throughout Europe. The main target groups for using this methodology are:

1. Decision makers such as home owners and housing corporations and investors and

2. Experts such as designers, project managers for construction and for maintenance and energy consultants.


The methodology will give guidance for making cost optimal decisions, giving cost optimal advice and for cost optimally implementing decisions. This article summarizes input for this methodology.
