Abstract

The worldwide CO2 emission mitigation efforts, the growing energy resource shortage and the fact that buildings are responsible for a large share of the world’s primary energy use drives research towards new building concepts, in particular Zero Energy/Emission Buildings (ZEBs). Unfortunately, the lack of a common understanding for this new type of building results in misunderstandings, endless discussions, and moreover number of unique approaches often applicable for a single ZEB project
