Experiences from new buildings
The move towards Nearly Zero-Energy Buildings (NZEB) in the Member States has allowed for innovative technologies to be steadily introduced into the building markets over the last few years. The purpose of the factsheet Innovative technologies is to collect and present initial experiences with new technologies in the Member States. Information has also been gathered on how Member States incorporate these technologies into their national Energy Performance (EP) calculation methods. The innovative technologies discussed in this context are demand-controlled ventilation, home-automation systems, reversible heat pumps (for cooling in summer), and advanced solar-shading systems.
