Major new project will harness AI to transform how zero-emission buildings are designed

Alt text coming shortly

The University of Oxford is to be a partner for the ZEBAI project (Zero-Emission and cost-effective Buildings based on Artificial Intelligence); a major new initiative which aims to revolutionise the way Zero-Emission buildings are designed. The project, backed by 3.8 million Euros of funding from the European Commission Horizon Programme, will establish demonstrator projects in four countries to test innovative approaches to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of buildings.

The building and construction sector is a major source of carbon emissions, accounting for over 34% of energy demand and around 37% of energy and process-related CO2 emissions in 2021 (UN Environment Programme). Currently, the sector is far off-track from decarbonising by 2050, presenting an urgent need to adopt low-carbon materials and building processes.
