Toeing the line: Nearly Zero Energy Building (NZEB) regulations will force heating manufacturers to Behave2016

Last week academia and industry descended upon the sleepy Portuguese university town of Coimbra to wrangle over the means for encouraging energy efficiency through changing user-behaviour. 

Looking to move the discussion beyond age-old discussions about the end-user in isolation, Delta-ee attended Behave2016 to reflect upon the role of supply-side stakeholders in the push for improved energy efficiency behaviour.

Nearly Zero Energy Buildings: A sneak preview of what technologies will make the cut

With Nearly Zero Energy Building (NZEB) regulations set to take the residential new-build market by storm in 2021, the burning question on many firms’ lips is what technologies are likely to be eligible under NZEB policy in the various EU heating markets? In our recent webinar we at Delta Energy & Environment explored the NZEB landscape in Denmark and Germany. Using our custom in-house NZEB model, we provided a sneak preview of our analysis into what technologies will make the cut, focusing on heat pumps and micro-CHP.

In this blog we’ll take a quick look at how the NZEB stacks-up in the heating market with one the most clearly defined set of NZEB regulations, Denmark.

Nearly Zero Energy Buildings: A European mystery

Love it or loathe it, the EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), and its recast creation Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB), are here to stay and apparently “save the day” for building energy efficiency. Whilst targeted at sizably reducing the impact of energy consumption in all new buildings as of 1 January 2021 (and 1 January 2019 for new public buildings), the implementation (or lack thereof) of NZEB legislation in Member States appears to have done much to cast the new build industry into disarray in its quest to mobilise EU member states to reduce the environmental impact of their respective building stock.

Working with heating system manufacturers and the new build industry, we at Delta Energy & Environment have been exposed to this first hand as part of our current investigation into the future impact of the EPBD & NZEB regulations on the heating market.
