ABSTRACT
The greatest potential for energy savings can be achieved in the residential sec-tor, where nearly 40% of final energy consumption is spent in all types of build-ings. Even though the buildings with nearly zero energy consumption consume 80% less energy for heating and cooling, compared with the conventional ways of energy gains for new buildings and 90% less energy than existing ones, their construction in our country is not very extensive yet. The main reason is high initial investment at the beginning of house construction, although with a guaranteed financial re-turn. Another factor is lack of public trust, or rather lack of information for the future home- owners about the details of buildings with low energy consumption. One way to solve it is through financial bonuses given to future homeowners during house project selection.
