Zero-energy building case studies

Explore how you can improve the energy efficiency of your building project and reduce your environmental footprint

Reach the break-even point

Nearly zero-energy buildings use materials that increase the energy efficiency of your building project and at the same time reduce your environmental footprint. Selected building case studies from the public and private sector introduce you to the application of recyclable products such as ROCKWOOL insulation. Use it as inspiration to reach the break-even point in terms of energy usage for your building project.

Nearly Zero-Energy Family House

(Denmark)

Zero-energy houses allow you to balance out your energy payments by reducing the energy consumption of your house to a minimum and by using renewable energy sources. Learn more about a nearly zero-energy family house built in Glostrup, Denmark. Read the case study here.

Private home case studies

Our case studies can inspire you for your nearly zero-energy home project. Explore our four different case studies, which not only talk about energy efficient new buildings but also renovation techniques. 

Public project case studies

Explore public construction projects that are designed for nearly zero-energy consumption. This means that the energy used for e.g. heating or cooling the construction is counterbalanced by the energy saved and even reused. 

Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge

(China)

 Bridges are exposed to strong forces like compression, tension, and weather.

The world´s longest sea bridge, the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge, provides an extreme example for the application of energy-efficient building material. Read the case study here.

Page summary

Nearly Zero-energy buildings, designs, and constructions use materials that increase energy efficiency, increase your building´s energy performance, and at the same time transform buildings to green buildings. Zero-energy building and construction case studies from the public and private sector introduce you to the broad range of applications of recyclable ROCKWOOL insulation. Use it as an inspiration to reach the break-even point in terms of energy usage for your building project.
