The LIMA prototype, through the involvement of IREC – Catalan Institute for Energy Research, is one of two buildings in Spain represented in the Task 40/ECBCS Annex 52 of the International Energy Agency: Towards Net Zero Energy Solar Buildings. An objective of the Task is to develop a common understanding, a harmonized international definitions framework for building standards, tools, innovative solutions and industry guidelines through practical NZEB demonstration projects, like the LIMA prototype. The second participating building is part of the building CIRCE - Center for Resource and Energy Consumption Research, in Zaragoza,by Petra Jebens-Zirkel.
