Zero: How low can we go?
10 Jan 2017 11:50 am
Join us in the new year for our light-hearted New Year debate. The EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive requires all new buildings to be nearly zero-energy by the end of 2020. Nearly zero-energy buildings (NZEB) have very efficient energy performance, and it is encouraged that the low amount of energy required comes mostly from renewable sources.
This event will debate whether NZEB is the right target, and what part the Passivhaus Standard has to play.
