Seven Steps to Fast-Track Affordable nearly Zero Energy Buildings

The nearly zero energy building standard, or nZEB, will become mandatory across the entire EU from 2018 for new public-owned-and-occupied buildings and for all other new buildings from 2020. It will require a significant improvement in the energy performance of buildings from current standards, with a strong focus on building envelope, mechanical systems and renewable energy generation.

This documentary is hosted by Tomás O'Leary, Director of nZEBRA - a consulting and training firm specialising in cost-effective nZEB solutions. Tomás takes you through the 7 key steps required to meet nZEB, using a real-life case study housing scheme in Wexford, Ireland.

This behind the scenes documentary provides a rare opportunity to follow a project right through from foundations to solar PV panels and features lots of innovative products and design strategies that will soon become common-place on building sites as we rapidly advance towards nZEB.
