The NERO project develops and demonstrates nearly Zero Energy Wood Buildings design process and procurement models with reduced cost for large-scale use in the northern climatic conditions and on performance level of nearly zero and beyond. On site and nearby renewable energy system solutions are studied in order to provide real addition of renewable and energy production of on-site energy system.
This paper is focused on data collected from existing nZEB day-care centres, in order to be able to assess possible differences between predicted and actual energy and indoor environmental performance. Building structures, service systems and the indoor climate and energy performance of five day-care centres were investigated in Estonia, Finland and Norway .
