CRAVEzero- Cost Reduction and market Acceleration for Viable nearly zero-Energy buildings
The project focuses on the development of methods to accelerate the market introduction of near-zero-energy buildings. The project aims to identify cost-saving opportunities in the planning phase and throughout the entire building life cycle – from urban development to the deconstruction of the buildings. The research project presents the potentials and currently possible methods in the three areas of processes, business model and technologies. The life cycle cost method was chosen as the summarising method and for the validation of the individual subareas. The results of the research project will be successively summarized and processed for the user in the CRAVEzero Pinboard. The aim of the research project is to enable each user to take the essential measures or to involve the relevant groups of people in order to plan, construct and operate a near-zero energy building.
