The concept of zero energy settlements is relatively new as, until recently, the focus of EU policy was mainly on the building scale. These days, in view of the ambitious 2050 full decarbonisation target, the revival of the ‘neighborhood’ concept and the need to reduce the initial and operational costs the benefits from designing at the settlement level have been put in the spotlight.

Concept:   Greening investments is a top priority for the EU, which requires financial advisers to consider the environmental objectives of their clients and beneficiaries.   However, energy efficiency (EE) and sustainable energy (SE) investments face a finance gap. The EU-funded LEVEL EEI project will make these EE and SE products more competitive. It will conduct behavioural science field experiments to assess end users’ demands for environmental products.
