MaTrID “Market Transformation Towards Nearly Zero Energy Buildings Through Widespread Use of Integrated Energy Design”
Posted: 17/05/2013 11:52

MaTrID aims to support the implementation of Nearly Zero Energy Buildings by 2020. In this context the building design phase is of particular importance. Integrated Energy Design (IED) is a valuable approach to reduce the complexity of the design process and facilitate the interactions between the members of the design team. IED allows them to provide the best solution for the whole building.


  • Establishing the general understanding on the advantages and requirements of IED at the side of real estate developers and building owners
  • Improving the know-how basis on IED
  • Testing the practical implementation of IED on a large scale thus setting best practice examples which can be easily copied and multiplied
  • Development of a common tool-kit for the integrated energy design of NZEB
    • Clients brief for NZEB
    • IED-related model contracts
    • IED-friendly remunerations models
    • User-friendly IED guideline
  • Adaptation of the common tool-kit to national requirements
  • Implementing EU-wide promotion and dissemination activities
  • Drawing conclusions for a further market adoption of IED in the years after the end of the project
