Housing 4.0 Energy Newsletter 5

Read about the latest development of the Housing 4.0 project aiming to reduce the cost and carbon footprint of ZEH home constructions.

The main goal of the Interreg North-West Europe Housing 4.0 Energy project is to offer small (1-2 person) households in North-West Europe access to new affordable near-zero energy/low carbon homes (NZEH) and zero-energy/low carbon homes (ZEH), ultimately reducing home building costs by 25% and carbon emissions by 60%.

Housing 4.0 Energy (H4.0E) will develop an affordable ZEH market by adapting and applying new technologies, thus creating both consumer and supplier interest. Digitisation (4.0) techniques and the development of an H4.0E digital platform ignite fundamental changes in design, manufacturing and construction within the housing industry to meet both EU climate targets and the needs of residents in North-West Europe.
