OSMA-PINTO, Germán Alfonso; SARMIENTO-NOVA, David Andrés; BARBOSA-CALDERON, Nelly Catherine  and  ORDONEZ-PLATA, Gabriel. Energy considerations of social dwellings in Colombia according to the NZEB concept. Dyna rev.fac.nac.minas [online]. 2015, vol.82, n.192, pp.120-130. ISSN 0012-7353.

In this paper, the characteristics and definitions of NZEBs are studied. In particular, the methods for calculating balance for each concept and methodology are analyzed in this work, taking into account the interaction of the NZEB with the energy grid, the emissions produced per energy consumption and the introduction of the primary energy concept as an indicator of balance. High-energy-efficient appliances are the main interest in this paper due to their importance and level of use in tropical regions. How these appliances can reduce energy consumption is described, as well as their impact on electrical performance being of significant benefit in Colombia. That is if they could be applied on a massive scale in projects related to Viviendas de Interés Social -VIS (social dwellings) in the long term.

Keywords : NZEB; NZEB Balance; emission; site; source; on-grid; off-grid; energy efficient appliances; passive applications.
