RENOVATION OF PUBLIC BUILDINGS ACCORDING TO NZEB STANDARD WILL:

  • lower the energy demand for heating and cooling
  • lower the CO2 emissions
  • increase the share of renewable energy
  • increase the comfort, health, performance at work

In order to address the issue of poor energy performance of public buildings- eCentral project is supporting key stakeholders in better understanding benefits of nZEB – nearly Zero Energy Buildings. The project will prove that the nZEB approach, although innovative, is an optimal and cost-effective
