WSED 2013
September 7, 2012

WELS, AUSTRIA - First Announcement & Call for Papers, Deadline: Oct. 8, 2012

The coming years will see a sharp increase in the market uptake of highly efficient buildings
throughout Europe: by 2018, new public buildings must be "nearly zero energy buildings",
by 2020, this will apply to all new buildings.

According to the European Buildings Directive, a "nearly zero energy building" is a building that
has a very high energy performance and the very low amount of energy required is covered
to a very signifi cant extent by renewable energy sources.

The Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB) Conference will offer:
- presentations of criteria for NZEB and how this standard can be achieved
- the latest technology trends and financing solutions
- the meeting place for the global sustainable buildings community
- an outlook on the European and globalmarkets for sustainable buildings, including "National Plans for NZEB"
- inspirational case studies and site-visits
- exchange of experience among experts and new business opportunities
- WSED next - an event for young researchers on energy efficiency in buildings
- a major trade show, the “Energiesparmesse“, dedicated to energy efficiency and renewable energy in buildings, with 1,600 exhibitors

Upper Austria is an ideal location for such a conference:
due to consistent policies, today there are more than 1,000 buildings meeting passive
building standard and several thousand "near zero energy buildings".
