Nearly Zero Energy Buildings as a term was introduced in the Directive of the European Parliament on the energy performance of buildings: a “nearly zero-energy building means a building that has a very high energy performance and that the nearly zero or very low amount of energy required should be covered to a very significant extent by energy from renewable sources, including energy from renewable sources produced on-site or nearby” (European Parliament, 2010). It is up to each member state to determine how to quantify ’nearly zero’.
