The core objective of AIDA is a widespread market adoption of NZEB, reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions, which are important factors to reach the 2020 targets. In this context two assumptions can be drawn:
- NZEB will become a mainstream trend in Europe before 2020, if main stakeholders and the public are well informed and both consider sustainable building as a matter of course.
- The wide-spread use of sustainable building technologies can be accelerated by creating local seeds as starting point for technology diffusion all over Europe. These seeds, created in municipalities, are the beginning for best-practice learning by common exchange of knowledge and transnational cooperation, even beyond the project's timeline.
AIDA has a notable benefit for the target group and contributes to EU's 2020 targets significantly in enabling a sustainable future.
