NEED4B Project
NEED4B will develop an open and easily replicable methodology for designing, constructing, and operating very low energy new buildings, aiming to a large market uptake. NEED4B methodology will be validated and refined by a strong demonstration programme, envisaging the construction of 27.000 m2, spread among five demo sites covering different climatic zones, buildings types and uses, what ensures replicability of the project results and guarantees their impact in the construction sector
How to build very low energy buildings?
All buildings in NEED4B have a common target of achieving a primary energy consumption lower than 60 kWh/m2 year. NEED4B will deliver a methodology for designing, constructing and operating energy efficient buildings achieving this same target and beyond. Click here to see specific recommendations and guidelines adapted to the main stakeholders involved in the process: investors, promoters, owner, users, architects, contractors, public authorities, standardization bodies, policy makers, SMEs, etc.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 285173
