School buildings constitute a rather special case of buildings when it comes to energy performance since the operational costs for heating, cooling and ventilation are usually far less important than the achieved thermal comfort, indoor air quality and lighting levels due to the very sensitive subject of students’ health, well-being and ability to attend lessons Moreover, there is a significant margin for improvement in school buildings’ energy performance and indoor environmental quality. The aim of the present paper is to present the design and energy technologies of a zero energy school in Greece. The energy performance of the zero energy building is analysed. A reduction of the energy demand by almost 68% is accomplished while a significant improvement of the indoor thermal comfort is achieved through the zero energy building design.
