This report explores how local and regional planning instruments can promote the development of Positive Energy Buildings (PEBs) across Europe. To this end, a broad range of European local and regional authorities were interviewed regarding approaches to governing and planning the development of nearly and net zero energy buildings as well as PEBs. The analysis of the interviews provides insights on present local and regional authority strategies and planning approaches in relation to PEB development, identifies needs for – and barriers to – scaling and explores local as well as regional ambitions to adapt planning systems accordingly. This guidebook summarises the key findings of Task 1.3, aiming to empower sub-national governments to promote PEBs by integrating policies and measures urban planning frameworks at city as well as regional level.
