NEED4B Project will develop
an open and easily replicable methodology for designing, constructing, and operating very low energy new buildings, aiming to a large market uptake.
Welcome to NEED4B
A EU-FP7 collaborative project that will demonstrate cost-effective and energy efficient technologies and methods for the design, construction and operation of very low energy new buildings. A series of pilots located in different European climates will show how to achieve a primary energy consumption lower than 60 kWh/m2 year in the buildings.
Aiming to ensure replicability of project results, NEED4B will also deliver an open methodology for designing, constructing and operating very low energy new buildings, laying the ground for a large market uptake.
