This call for proposals aims to development and demonstration of solutions which significantly reduce the cost of new buildings with at least ‘nearly zero-energy’ performance levels, whilst accelerating significantly the speed with which these buildings and their systems are taken up by the market

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
– Significant increase of the share of ‘nearly zero-energy’ buildings with the aim of 100% market uptake by the end of 2020
– Costs reductions of at least 15% compared to current situation, with additional benefits in terms of energy reduction.
– Demonstration for net-zero energy districts taking advantage of onsite or nearby-generation of renewable energy

Among financed actions
– Design methods for on-site and nearby-generation of renewable energy for new buildings (electricity as well as heating and cooling generation, e.g. heat pumps, integrated photovoltaics, or other options)
– Demonstration projects of buildings as  active contributors to energy production and environmental quality in particular when new districts are planned (e.g. net-zero energy neighbourhoods)
