Nearly Zero Energy Building

What is the nZEB Standard?

Nearly Zero Energy Building

Any building that is given the standard of nZEB is a building with nearly zero net energy consumption, meaning the total amount of energy used by the building on an annual basis is roughly nearly zero. With EcoVolt products your building can achieve this standard.

European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive 2010

All New Buildings to be nZEB by Dec 2020

The European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive 2010 (EPBD) requires all new buildings to be nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZZEB) by 31st December 2020 and all buildings acquired by public bodies by 31st December 2018. This means that buildings completed after these dates should endeavour to reach the standard of nZEB regardless of when the building project started.

In July 2016 the European commission provided additional guidance on the nZEB standard, in particular for the Oceanic Zone which applies to Ireland.

In response to the revised regulations the Irish Government have issued revised Non-Residential Building Regulations which comes into force 1st January 2019 with a transitional arrangement beyond 1st January 2020.

For residential buildings the revised Building Regulations which comes into force on 1st April 2019. This means that any dwelling receiving planning permission after the 1st April should meet the nZEB standard.
