FleXible user-CEntric Energy poSitive houseS – brings together 21 partners from 8 countries to showcase how nearly-zero energy buildings can be transformed into positive energy buildings. Funded by the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme over a 4-year period, EXCESS will spearhead four innovative demonstration projects, introducing technical solutions that enable buildings to produce more renewable energy than they consume over the course of a year. By implementing demonstration projects that span across the Nordic, Continental, Oceanic and Mediterranean climate zones, EXCESS seeks to test, validate and share PEB solutions with potential replicability across Europe.
EXCESS is our sister project under the topic LC-EEB-03-2019 New developments in plus energy houses (IA).
The ZEN Research Centre is a research centre for environmentally friendly energy (“FME” in Norwegian stands for “forskningssenter for miljøvennlig energy”). It was established in 2017 by the Research Council of Norway and is hosted by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). At the ZEN Research Centre, we conduct research on zero emission neighbourhoods (ZEN) in smart cities. Their goal is to develop solutions for future buildings and neighbourhoods with no greenhouse gas emissions and thereby contribute to a low carbon society.
