The construction sector currently accounts for about a third of global energy consumption and a large part of this consumption is directly attributed to the design and construction of buildings. A wide range of measures has been adopted and implemented to actively promote better energy efficiency in buildings, including the ZEB (Zero Energy Building) concept, which is a realistic solution for reducing CO2 emissions.The zero-energy construction is discussed in this article. Energy resources have been described. NZEB's goal is not only to minimize the building's energy consumption by using passive design methods but also to design a building that reconciles energy needs with active techniques and renewable technologies.
