NZEB Goals

NZEB goals of all member countries of the European Union are governed by the Directive on Energy Performance of Buildings or EPBD, which binds EU member states to ensure that all newly constructed buildings must have a nearly zero-energy performance by 2020 and all public buildings must be nearly zero energy by 2018.

EPBD was first issued in 2002 (EPBD, 2002/91/EC) and then in 2010 (2010/31/EC) with amendments.
