ZEB stands for (Net) Zero Energy Building
In order to prevent global warming, it is necessary for us to reduce
energy consumption in many different places.
The Japanese government is aiming to popularize ZEBs as an energy reduction measure in the business sector (including office buildings, commercial facilities, etc.). ZEBs are buildings aimed at reducing energy input and output used in buildings by reducing energy used through energy saving, and by generating energy with solar power (energy creation), while maintaining a comfortable indoor environment.
*In the household sector (homes), there are also ZEHs or (net) zero energy houses, which have improved thermal insulation on their outer walls, and incorporate the same efforts as ZEBs.
ECORU Togoshi, the first “Nearly ZEB” certified public building in Tokyo.
Shinagawa City is promoting environmentally friendly buildings such as
ZEBs, in order to reduce the environmental burden of the entire city.
This facility is the first public building in Tokyo to obtain “Nearly ZEB”
* certification. It is expected to have 85% lower energy consumption than a standard building of its size. *There are 4 ranks of ZEB, with Nearly ZEB being the second rank from the top.
In each part of the building, mechanisms for energy saving and energy
creation shown in the above illustration are introduced in an easily
You can also see timely information about environmentally equipment on the monitor on the left.
Using this facility as interactive learning materials, you can learn about ZEB and get a deeper understanding.
