Project - Nearly Zero Energy Project


Description (EN): The Recast Energy Performance of Buildings Directive 2010/31/EU (EPBD2) requires that new buildings occupied and owned by public authorities erected after 2018, and all other new buildings erected after 2020, must be ‘nearly zero energy’. The main project will form a Taskforce which will bring together transnational expertise to produce best practice design templates, construction details and case studies to demonstrate how the NZE targets can be met. These solutions will be specific to meeting challenges of sparsely populated communities associated with the climatic conditions in the NPA region. The preparatory funding will enable us to: Scope the expertise amongst agreed partners & where necessary seek further partnerships Identify the barriers to achieving NZE (Local, National and Regional) Benchmarking the current position & identify best practice Identify work packages required for the main project application Development of formal main project application The new and innovative nature of this project is the collaborative sharing of expertise to develop common construction methods which will aid compliance with the Directive across the NPA.
Expected Results (EN): Preparedness of responsible authorities in remote, sparsely populated areas for environmental management in relation to climate change and impacts of new investments in exploitation of natural resources
