Abstract

Transforming cities to deal with the resource scarcity and the threats of the climate change remain major challenges in the urban development. Hence, districts are already taking an active key role in European policies. Buildings are a key consumer of energy worldwide representing over than 40% of the overall energy consumption at European level. In this current context of arising interest, reducing energy consumption is an important target. During the last years, the ‘zero energy idea’ has been introduced in international scientific literature review aiming at a more sustainable urban and built environment focusing on individual buildings by articulating the requirements for an annual basis of an energy balance equal to zero. ‘U-ZED’ (Urban-Zero Energy Districts) methodological assessment tool focuses on the challenge of zero energy objective on a district scale. In this paper, the analysis emphasises the ‘transformation’ of Bo01 Malmö area in a mixed-use zero energy district.
