European legislation on buildings (EPBD) and energy efficiency (EED) require European member states to develop strategies on how to progressively transform their national building stocks into an energy performing and climate neutral built environment. Very low or 'nearly Zero-Energy Buildings' will become mandatory for all new constructions from 2020 onwards.
