Energy efficient house GA1




Building Type



By joining the Treaty establishing the Energy Community (which the European Union uses in the energy sector with non-EU countries), Ukraine has become a full member since February 2011 and has committed itself to implementing the provisions of EU Directives 2006/32/EU on energy end-use efficiency and energy services; 2010/31/EU on the energy performance of buildings; 2010/30/EU on the indication by labelling and standard product information of the consumption of energy and other resources by energy-related products; 2012/27/EU on energy efficiency.

The Law of Ukraine “On Energy Efficiency of Buildings”, developed in accordance with Directive 2010/31/EU, was signed by the President of Ukraine on July 20, 2017, and became the basis of the state policy for reducing energy consumption in buildings.

Considering the totality of the above data, the energy efficiency requirements of buildings will increase; taking into account the rising cost of heating will increase the demand for the use of alternative energy sources and the design of nearly zero-energy buildings.

Today in the European Union construction of objects consuming more than 60 kWh/m2 per year is not allowed; from 2019 the maximum permissible specific energy consumption of the building will be up not more than 15 kWh/m2 per year; and from 2020 a massive transition to the construction of buildings with zero energy consumption will be begun. In the future – buildings that produce more energy than consuming.

In response to the urgent requirement of today, the architecture company “Golub Architects” launches a series of typical projects of energy-efficient houses, the first of which is GA1.
