Abstract
One of the main and also novel requirements of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) 2010/31/EU, compared to Directive 2002/91/EC, is that Member States (MSs) have to take measures so that, by the end of 2020, all new buildings are Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (NZEBs) and, already by the end of 2018, all new public buildings are NZEBs. While the EPBD includes the general requirement, the deadlines and a general definition of a NZEB, it is the task of the Member States (MS) to transpose and implement the requirement into national law and regulations, to adapt the general definition to the national boundary conditions and to clarify the term in the national context. MSs shall inform the EC on their detailed application in practice of the NZEB definition in national plans. The Concerted Action (CA) EPBD discussed in detail issues relating to setting up national requirements, designing, calculating, monitoring, financing and disseminating NZEBs. One of the key working areas was the exchange of information and discussion of national approaches of the application of the NZEB definition. This report summarises the status of the applications of the NZEB definition in the countries at the end of April 2015.
