The AIDA (Affirmative Integrated Energy Design Action) project aims to accelerate the market entry of nearly zero-energy buildings (nZEB) reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions, which are important factors to reach the 2020 targets. AIDA supports building professionals and local authorities around Europe in designing nearly zero-energy buildings (nZEB). The target group is primarily municipal representatives as market multipliers on the demand side, as well as architects and master-builders on the supply side.

Over the last decade, mandatory or voluntary methods of certification of buildings have spread at both a national and local level in Italy. In order to evaluate their effectiveness in achieving an integrated design process, these methods have been analyzed. Then a number of direct and indirect features have been pointed out to foster the adoption of an integrated design approach and then compared. Due to the federal mandate of Italian Regions to define their own regulatory instruments, a large number of certification schemes have already been or are going to be developed in Italy.
