Synthesize methods into common NZEB-methodology

The AZEB project has been started to develop methods, based on potential identified solutions, that can be applied in actual projects to synthesize these methods into a common methodology for constructing cost effective NZEB with RES. They must be applicable in different European cultures and climate zones and will be tested and improved in the project.

AZEB aims to define quantifiable indicators for the buildings performance on economy, energy, comfort, IAQ, environmental and social aspects of sustainability. The project wants to collect and decide on tools to predict and actually evaluate these indicators during the project. These indicators and tools will be added to the common methodology as a set of complementary solutions for predicting or judging building performance and cost.
