Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My understanding is that EU building standards are phasing in net zero or near net zero as the new building standards, as is the state of California, from now until 2030 when all new buildings and renovations will have to meet that standard, producing as much energy as is used.  Not sure if that means all the energy has to be produced onsite or whether offsite arrangements (solar farms and coops and such) can be included.

I collect links to developments in net zero energy building at https:/zeronetenrg.blogspot.com and as a listserv if anyone is interested.  Years of links available at the website.
