Towards 2020: Zero-Energy Building for Residential and Non-Residential Buildings

2014, Hebenstreit, Hannes, Hafner, Bernd, Stumpf, Wolfgang, Mattenberger, Harald

This chapter assesses the options for both non-residential and residential buildings to reach a zero-energy building (ZEB) standard. Besides the already widely practiced consistent minimization of the energy demand for heating and hot water supply of buildings, further progress can be made by minimizing the electric energy demand. Besides highly efficient lighting, the calculations done showed a significant savings potential by using energy-efficient electrical devices.
