NZEB (Nearly Zero Energy Buildings)
A ‘Nearly Zero Energy Building’ (NZEB) means a building that has a very high energy performance. The nearly zero or very low amount of energy required by the building should be covered mostly by energy from renewable sources produced on-site or nearby. The NZEB standard will apply to all new buildings occupied after the 31st December 2020. For public sector bodies, the standard will apply to all new buildings owned or occupied by the 31st December 2018.
Members of the ORS Energy Team have completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Digital Analysis and Energy Retrofit in the Dublin Institute of Technology. The team is highly knowledgeable in the area of NZEB and can offer specialist advice and guidance.
