A market overview of erected low-energy buildings in Sweden
The recently revised directive on the energy performance of buildings (2010/31/EU) contains requirements that all new-build public buildings must meet the requirements for “near zero-energy buildings” by 1st January 2019, and that the same will apply to all buildings with effect from 1st January 2021. The definition of exactly what “near zero-energy buildings” means is left to each member state to decide for its buildings. If this performance is to be achieved, it will require a number of support measures and a tightening up of regulations relating to new building work and renovation work. Developing a strategy for near zero-energy buildings and deciding which and where resources should be set in requires updated information on the present market status of low-energy Buildings.
