In addition, the importance of the simultaneous examination of the environmental footprint of the building increases. Therefore, the construction and operation of a building require a multifaceted analysis of its elements and specifications. In the above context, the IsZEB Standard aims to establish a comprehensive evaluation of Smart and Energy Efficient buildings. It deploys National and European standards of both energy efficiency (KENAK, European Directives, etc.) and smartness of a building (The European Methodology SRI). In the meanwhile, the IsZEB Standard incorporates in its methodology additional levels of control, which aim at the comprehensive evaluation of a building in terms of achieving modern conditions of operation, accommodation, and use by its occupants.
Based on its thorough and human-centered approach towards the holistic evaluation of buildings, it continuous evolves, setting up a dynamic Standard which is formed based on the developments of the construction sector and the market needs.
