Nearly Zero Energy nZEB Research Group
Tallinn University of Technology, Faculty of Civil Engineering
Nearly Zero Energy nZEB Research Group was established in 2012 at Tallinn University of Technology by a grant from the Estonian Research Council, with a support of the European Social Fund (ESF), the researcher mobility programme Mobilitas. This grant provides a funding for the period of 01.04.2012 – 31.07.2015. Research is focused on technical solutions for nZEB most urgently needed in Estonia. These include new heating and ventilation solutions suitable for specific operation conditions in nZEB, new external wall assembly solutions studied with computational analyses and climate chamber tests. Office building solar shading and façade analyses will use energy simulations and measurements at TUT technological facility. Energy simulations are combined with economic and cost optimal analyses. This multi- and interdisciplinary nZEB research group represents a strong networking effort within TUT among four different disciplines: Energy performance of buildings, Building Service Systems, Building Physics and Construction Economics and Management.
