2016-01-21 United Kingdom: Cost Reduction of New Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (NZEBs)


Cost Reduction of New Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (NZEBs)

Description of the project offered: 
EE-13-2016: Cost reduction of new Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (NZEBs)

Project Scope (taken from call): Proposals should focus on reducing the cost of designing and constructing new NZEBs (Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings) in order to increase their market uptake. Proposals should explore how improved performance beyond the NZEB level can be reached whilst maintaining an overall focus on cost reduction.

Project Idea: 
- Literature review to evaluate cost reduction solutions and technologies (e.g. MVHA, heat recovery flues, solar thermal, solar PV, heat pumps, biomass, district heating, supply/ demand response, insulation, fabric etc) (this should compare proven technologies with ongoing innovative options);
- Europe wide case studies of recently completed new build developments to include:
 Theoretical modelling of savings
 Actual monitoring of savings (e.g. reduced use of gas/ electricity kWh and comparisons made on a m2 basis);
 User interaction (e.g. to build up a picture of their experience of the systems).
- Life-cycle analysis (??)
- Review of market barriers
