Pilot cases

16 Hotels in Europe benefited from technical assistance to become neZEH and enjoy up to 70% reduction of their primary energy consumption using best solutions: energy efficiency measures, renewable energy sources and behavioural changes of staff and clients. Commitment to the environment and sustainability was a key prerequisite for hoteliers to achieve nearly zero status.

The pilot cases were implemented in the 7 neZEH countries: (Croatia, Greece, France, Italy, Romania, Spain, Sweden) to prove the feasibility and sustainability of neZEH projects.

The neZEH hotel owners received:

  • Access to technical expertise
  • Energy audits suggesting technical solutions
  • Feasibility studies for financing decision-making
  • Advice on national financing alternatives
  • Training of hotel staff
  • Increased visibility at national and EU level and promotional tools to communicate efficiently their neZEH profile to potential customers
