Minergie-A

Minergie-A logo

MINERGIE-A is a label for new and refurbished low-energy-consumption buildings that seek "Nearly zero-energy Buildings" according to the EU guidelines 2010/31. It also takes into account the building gray energy, unlike MINERGIE and MINERGIE-P standards.

The following requirements must be met:

  • Heat demand 90 % or less of the limit of the standard SIA 380/1 (like MINERGIE)
  • At least half of the heat demand must be met using solar panels
  • Weighted Energy Index < 0 kWh/m2 (15 kWh/m2 bei using a biomass plant)
  • Energy-efficient household appliances
  • Gray Energy Index < 50 kWh/m2

The MINERGIE ECO Standard considers ecological and social requirements and can be combined with the MINERGIE-A leading to the MINERGIE-A-ECO Standard.
