literature research. Energy, 71, 1-16.
NZEB (net zero energy building), is an evaluation system that shows how building design
is determined to be a sustainable design, or not. Within the article, there are many
indicators noted which one may use when accessing if a building is under the zone of
high-performance energy. Further, the NZEB system has undergone numerous studies
which illustrate exactly how these structures are considered, including multiple points,
methods, and strategies. These include passive design, design comfort, and renewable
This evaluation illustrates an essential method in testing the performance of a building. I
learned that NZEB is one of the suggested methods of testing the building from many
aspects. NSEB also outlines design strategies when making a building environmentally
friendly. The flipside of this is that the methods were quite complicated, especially for
someone who is not familiar with this type of specification and detail. Personally, I was
not expecting a sustainable building design to require a hard test in order to be considered
as a sustainable buil...
