Solvia is carrying out a pioneer initiative in Spain within the area of energy conservation for new properties, by designing a nearly zero energy use residential building (nZEB). To carry this out, Solvia has selected the town of Torrejón de Ardoz (Madrid).
This project, which is currently being drafted by the prestigious team Ruiz-Larrea & Asociados, is the result of the Madrid 0,0 Competition and speaks for Solvia’s steadfast commitment to developing a new housing model that places special emphasis on energy consumption. As can be expected, the development will have Energy Performance Certificate Rating A, with very low power consumption and very limited CO2 emissions.
With this initiative, Solvia is moving far ahead of European Union Directive 2010/31, which will be coming into force in all member states as of 31 December 2020 and which sets forth that all new constructions must have nearly zero energy use.
