Nearly Zero Energy Building (NZEB) design and construction competition
Tipperary County Council with the support of the Tipperary Energy Agency are actively promoting Nearly Zero Energy Building (NZEB) design and construction. An NZEB building has a very high energy performance, covered mostly by energy from renewable sources produced either on-site or nearby. In terms of Building Energy Rating, NZEB dwellings should be generally rated as A2 or higher and be more energy efficient and will have a lower energy cost.
A key aspect of the promotional programme was a regional training event held in Thurles on the 26th of November 2019. This was attended by over 100 persons involved in the design and delivery of new homes.
The speakers included representatives from the SEAI, the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government, the Building Control section Tipperary County Council and the Tipperary Energy Agency.
On the day an exciting new national Design Competition for the best domestic extension to NZEB standard was launched, this is aimed at designers and homeowners and comes with a €3,000 prize fund.
