|Energy Efficiency Description:|
ZEB and ZEH* are recognized as the key energy and electricity saving concepts in national strategic documents such as the 2011 Energy Conservation Technology Strategy and the latest 2014 Basic Energy Plan. The FY 26 budget of METI’s Agency of Natural Resources of Energy includes a large amount of budget for promotional projects (such as the assistance projects for investing in high efficiency equipment and facilities) for energy efficiency technology that can be allied to housing and buildings. The target for ZEB and ZEH are clearly specified as follows:
- Enforce ZEB for newly constructed public buildings, etc., by the year 2020.
- Achieve zero emission in standard newly-constructed houses by 2020.
- To set the annual target number of ZEH on the condition that more than half of the total newly constructed houses would have to satisfy the ZEH standard.
