Overview of Member States information on nZEBs

Updated Progress Report on Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings

Published: 26/01/2015

For the European Commission Ecofys provided an overview of the information communicated by Member States on Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (NZEBs). The working version of the Progress Report gives an overview of the differences in progress between the Member States concerning the implementation of the NZEB requirements (EPBD article 9), showing a clear improvement, both quantitatively and qualitatively, of the information submitted to the European Commission.

Ecofys prepared also a Background Paper that summarises the development of the templates created in 2013 to facilitate the submission of the national plans as well as the collection of consolidated information from Member States, who broadly accepted these new tools. Furthermore, the paper evaluates the quality of the templates and presents some suggestions for improvement.
