Abstract: Buildings are responsible for 36 % of CO2 emissions in the EU. The Interreg Europe project entitled ZEROCO2 ‘‘Promotion of Near Zero CO2 emission buildings due to energy use” aims at addressing policies, actions and investments to facilitate the transition of buildings to nearly Zero CO2 emission buildings due to energy use (NZCO2EB). The project is made up of eight partners from eight different regions and has a duration of 4 years. Project phase 1 (2016-2018), dedicated to interregional learning, has been completed. This paper summarises the deliverables of project phase 1, with a special emphasis on Malta’s market needs and policy action plans required to ease its transition to NZCO2EB. It is envisaged that in project phase 2 (2018-2020), the priority policy action plans identified in this paper will be implemented. This will enable Malta to reduce its operating CO2 emissions from buildings, while assisting the country to reach its 2020 energy efficiency (EE), renewable energy (RE) and nearly zero energy in building (NZEB) targets.
