 With energy-efficient construction,​ the primary energy demand for the application of electricity during the period of use, as well as the embodied energy of the building materials become increasingly significant. With energy-efficient construction,​ the primary energy demand for the application of electricity during the period of use, as well as the embodied energy of the building materials become increasingly significant.

 The very first zero-energy houses which were built in the 1970s required complicated and costly technical systems. Today however, experience with low-energy houses has shown a more practical and easier approach: cost-efficient highly insulated houses without any heating systems, called Passive Houses, constitute the standard of the future.

 Climate change caused by humans is a threat to flora, fauna and our entire civilization. We must therefore reduce net greenhouse gas emissions to a sustainable amount. Possible future solutions in the building sector include zero-carbon / zero-emissions buildings, which are already required in some areas.
