Certification of Near Zero Energy Buildings Ireland nZEB
What is the nZEB standard?
The European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive Recast 2010 (EPBD) requires all new buildings to be nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB) by 31st December 2020 and all buildings acquired by public bodies by 31st December 2018.
Residential buildings: The Irish Government is implementing the Energy Performance Building Directive 2010 recast through revised building regulations for homes which are proposed to come into force on 1st April 2019. This means that any dwelling receiving planning permission after 1st April should meet the nZEB standard. Substantial completion must have been achieved by 1st April 2020. After 2020 all homes irrespective of when they received planning permission should achieve the new standard.
