A zero energy house is based on the principle of a passive house construction and thus it’s a building in which a comfortable interior climate can be maintained without active heating and cooling systems. The house heats and cools itself, hence „passive“.   

This means that the combined energy consumption of a „zero energy house“ is less than the average new home requires for household electricity and hot water alone. The combined end energy consumed by a „zero energy house“ is therefore less than a quarter of the energy consumed by the average new construction that complies with applicable national energy regulations.
