In Palermo the 3rd meeting of Zero Plus project
From the 15th to the 17th of March 2017 in Palermo (Italy) the 3rd progress meeting of Zero Plus project, funded by EU Research and Innovation programme Horizon 2020, took place. The aim of ZERO-PLUS (Acronym of “Achieving near Zero and Positive Energy Settlements in Europe using Advanced Energy Technology”) research project is to search for buildings design for new highly energy performing buildings. In this project a comprehensive, cost-effective modular system for Net Zero Energy settlements will be developed and implemented in four case studies across Europe (in Italy, United Kingdom, Cyprus and France).
The partners are working together even by periodic meetings to develop an innovative and readily implementable system for near zero energy residential neighbourhoods that will significantly reduce their costs. Among the innovative technologies used to implement Zero Plus project there is also freescoo system patented by Solarinvent.
