, also known as zero-carbon building, is a building with zero net energy consumption, meaning the total amount of energy used by the building on an annual basis is roughly equal to the amount of renewable energy created on the site.

For instance, with regards to green building standards, the UAE is already aligned with the global timeline to adopt Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEBs
) according to EmiratesGBC's recent report, 'Defining Nearly Zero Energy Buildings in the UAE -- 2017.'
Recently values for embodied and primary energy were defined by national law and included in nZEB
definition (Table 1).
The Emirates Green Building Council (EmiratesGBC) has defined the concept of nearly zero-energy buildings (nZEBs
) within the UAE context in a new report.
The definition of NZEB
(Nearly Zero Energy Building) is not unique across the EU.
By reducing the overall energy demand, building energy efficient buildings can significantly reduce C[O.sub.2] emissions and promote nearly zero energy buildings NZEB
. Potential energy savings can be achieved in residential buildings through proper heat, ventilation, and air-conditioning HVAC design, since this accounts for 40% of total building energy consumption.
