ZEBAI Project Secures €3.8 Million for AI-Enhanced Zero-Emission Building Design

Lurtis AI is proud to announce its involvement in the groundbreaking ZEBAI Project, which has received €3,879,168.25 in funding from the European Commission’s Horizon Programme. As developers of the AI-enhanced tools integral to the project, we’re excited to be at the forefront of revolutionizing zero-emission building design.

The ZEBAI Project brings together a diverse range of interdisciplinary teams to develop a comprehensive methodology aimed at transforming the way zero-emission buildings are designed. With a focus on energy performance, environmental impact, indoor environmental quality, and cost-effectiveness, ZEBAI aims to set a new standard in sustainable building practices.

Led by Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and comprising a consortium of 18 partners from 7 European countries, the project kicked off in January 2024 with a meeting in Madrid. During this event, partners shared their technical backgrounds and anticipated roles in the project, setting the stage for collaboration and innovation.

Antonio LaTorre, Project Coordinator from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, expressed excitement about the project’s potential to achieve major breakthroughs in zero-emission building design. ZEBAI aims to harness the power of artificial intelligence to optimize material and system selection, streamline the design process, and integrate environmental and cost-effectiveness objectives seamlessly.

To validate the effectiveness of the ZEBAI methodology, the project will implement four representative demonstrators located in Ukraine, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands. These real-world applications will serve as test cases, allowing the project team to assess the methodology’s performance across different climates, usages, and building patterns.

Aligned with Horizon Europe’s Cluster 5 for Energy, Climate, and Mobility, the ZEBAI project aims to streamline the development of scalable Zero Energy Building (ZEB) designs suited for diverse climates, purposes, and architectural styles. By integrating AI-assisted processes, the project aims to enhance the efficiency and user-friendliness of the design process while adhering to environmental quality and cost-effectiveness objectives.

As we work towards a future of climate neutrality in alignment with the European Green Deal, projects like ZEBAI are crucial in driving innovation and sustainability. Lurtis Rules is honored to be part of this transformative initiative and looks forward to contributing to the development of zero-emission building designs that will shape our future.

Let’s build a greener future together!
