On 13 June 2019 the national German CoNZEBs event was held in Saalbau Gutleut in Frankfurt. More than 110 practitioners and decision makers attended the event organised as a mix of presentations of nearly zero-energy buildings and beyond case studies and measures to reduce the construction costs. The CoNZEBs project and its outcomes, such as cost saving alternative solution sets to achieve the NZEB standard and their life-cycle assessment, were presented in detail and mirrored with the experiences and ideas of the audience by questions and answers and electronic polls.


Well-known architects and engineers as well as representatives from the Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development joined the German CoNZEBs team consisting of Fraunhofer IBP and ABG Frankfurt Holding. ABG Frankfurt Holding was the organiser of the event which was greatly appreciated by the audience and received a rating of 4.4 of maximum 5 points.
