World Nzeb Forum 2017, Wexford Nov. 15th & 16th – Delivering nearly zero energy building

Inaugural World nZEB Forum for nearly zero energy building

nZEB will be mandated across the EU commencing end of 2018. Here’s an opportunity for those involved in the built environment to get up to speed on what this will entail. The forum is being held in Wexford, Ireland, one of the front-runner regions spearheading the transition to nZEB. The event will showcase the very best in expertise, design, case study buildings and innovative products.

Over ten case study exemplary buildings will be presented, involving commercial as well as residential projects, both new-build and retrofit. Top government officials on the policy and regulatory framework will offer a glimpse into what the future holds in terms of smart grid and sustainable communities. There will be speakers from Ireland, mainland Europe and the US sharing their experiences with us.

If you’ve not yet heard of nZEB, or you want to explore this topic in greater detail, you will leave this event inspired and ready to embrace what is a paradigm shift in how we design, build and operate the spaces where we live and work.
