IREC participates in the working group of nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB) coordinated by ICAEN

With the objective to achieve the European Directive 2010/31/EU, which establishes that all the building must be nearly Zero Energy Building (nZEB) since December 31st of 2020, and public buildings since the end of 2018, the Catalan Energy Agency (ICAEN) is coordinating a working group to promote the nZEB. The working group is made up for Research and Technological Centres from Catalonia that are participating in European projects related to the construction and renovation of high performance buildings. IREC, LEITAT, ASCAMM-EURECAT, CIMNE and ICAEN are the centres that participate in the working group.

Moreover to organize informative activities, like the “Introductory course to construct nZEB buildings”, there is a space in the ICAEN’s website, where the different European projects related to the nZEB topic are collected, as for example RePublic_ZEB, SmartReflex and TRIBUTE.
