An autonomous house needs to produce more energy than it spends, but before looking for tons of solar panels let’s have a look what we can do on energy eficiency? Is it possible to cut house demands by x2 / x3 / x10 times?
The answer is Yes, and we did it!
“When the war started we had to live in the house without any heat sources for 30 days, it was February outside. Still our house remained warm (+19) through all this time. Our neighbors had +8 inside”
The whole world uses natural gas, many households are directly dependent on its cost. Ukrainians faced the same problem when prices began to rise. Up to this point, we have rarely talked about the comparability of utility bills and energy-efficient solutions.
Our team was one of the few who were looking for new ways and opportunities. Already 8 years ago, when it was not economically justified, we came close to the results that allow us to get an autonomous house
We did not foresee the rise in energy costs, we were just moving towards our goal – to become the pioneers of sustainable development in Ukraine
And then it turned out that natural gas became a problem and it was interesting to observe this because none of our clients use it. It’s amazing to me how much other countries in the world depend on natural gas when even in Ukraine we have learned how to design and build truly autonomous houses
It is in your hands to change the world for the better by taking the path of sustainable development

Nearly zero-emission building (NZEB) means a building that has a very high energy performance, while the nearly zero or very low amount of energy required should be covered to a very significant extent by energy from renewable sources, including energy from renewable sources produced on-site or nearby.
The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive requires that EU countries had to ensure that all new buildings were nearly zero-energy by the end of 2020 while all new public buildings had to be nearly zero-energy after 31 December 2018.
” The EU has proposed to move from the current nearly zero-energy buildings to zero-emission buildings by 2030.“
