In this first booklet, the results achieved by the project consortium within the first project period - 1st of October 2015 to 30th of September 2016 – are presented. Firstly, the four case studies (France, UK, Italy, and Cyprus) and the ZERO-PLUS technologies (SBskin, HCPV, Solarinvent Freescoo, FIBRAN, WindRailÒ, and ABB) are briefly introduced. Afterwards, an overview of the project outcomes within the following fields is provided:

  • State of the Art on Near Zero Energy (NZE) and Positive Energy Settlement
  • Design and Optimization of Modular Envelope Components
  • Energy Production and Management of Individual Buildings
  • Integrated Design and Optimization of the NZE Technologies to be implemented at the Settlements Level – Creation of Simulation and Monitoring Protocols
  • Integrated Design and Optimization of the ZERO-PLUS Settlements
  • Construction Management, Cost Management and Implementation of the Innovative Technologies
  • Monitoring and Evaluation of the Settlements´ Performance
  • Market analysis and model for business growth
  • Dissemination.

In the second booklet, the achievements of the ZERO-PLUS consortium within the project period – 1st of October 2016 to 30th of September 2017 – are reported emphasizing more on the final design and selected technologies for the four settlements (SBskin, HCPV, Solarinvent Freescoo, FIBRAN, WindRailÒ, and ABB) and the planning for realization. In each of the four case studies (UK, Italy, Cyprus and France), the following aspects are considered in more detail:

  • General information of the case study
  • Selection process of the technologies used in the respective case study
  • Implementation of the technologies selected for the respective case study
  • Monitoring and Evaluation of the technology performance.

Finally, the business case and market potential for ZERO-PLUS settlements and the dissemination activities performed by the project partners are presented.
