Saving energy with software
Institute / association
Ideas competition entry:
A significant future challenge, especially in Europe, will be the construction of new buildings to meet NZEB requirements set out by the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD).
All new buildings must be nearly zero-energy by the end of 2020. All new public buildings must be nearly zero-energy by 2018.
The idea is to have new buildings outfitted with submeters and software solutions during the construction stage, rather than implementing them ad-hoc. With the right energy management and reporting setup installed at the outset, new buildings will be streets ahead in reaching NZEB targets.
