Energy consumption in the building sector accounts for 20-50% of the total energy consumption in developed countries. Its minimization is of the highest priority in order to assure sustainable development and financial savings. Methodologies, regulations and international agreements have targeted at the goal of achieving ‘zero energy consumption buildings’ all over the world.
