This paper deals with new considerations about the design of Net Zero Energy Buildings and Net Zero Energy Neighbourhoods in the future. The perspectives presented here are the results from an international work named Task40/Annex52 "Towards Net Zero Energy Solar Buildings" conducted within the framework of the International Energy Agency (SHC-EBC) and in particular from the sub-group working on Solution Sets and case studies. We will see through case studies in different climates that the design scale to reach the Zero Energy goal is not the building anymore. The design of renewables as well as passive strategies must be extended to the whole neighbourhood.

Abstract

This paper deals with new considerations about the design of Net Zero Energy Buildings and Net Zero Energy Neighbourhoods in the future. The perspectives presented here are the results from an international work named Task40/Annex52 "Towards Net Zero Energy Solar Buildings" conducted within the framework of the International Energy Agency (SHC-EBC) and in particular from the sub-group working on Solution Sets and case studies. We will see through case studies in different climates that the design scale to reach the Zero Energy goal is not the building anymore. The design of renewables as well as passive strategies must be extended to the whole neighbourhood.
