Yet Another 'Tax' Burden?

Richard North, EU Referendum, posts on the introduction of the proposed "Energy Performance of Buildings Directive" which can be expected.

Setting to one side Richard's apt comments about the fact we will have no say in this proposed directive and MPs requested payrises, what exactly is 'net zero energy use' FFS? From what I can remember from my science lessons - albeit that is just over 50 years ago - 'net zero energy use' just ain't possible.

And how, if it were achievable, does a building in use 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year - for example, a hospital - attain 'net zero energy use'?

Oh and I believe the UK is £1.somethingtrillion - or is that £2trillion now - in debt, which means that we are now in debt even longer than we had estimated, when one considers the armies of 'crats' that are going to be needed to monitor yet another stupid 'mentalist' idea.

Afterthought: having seen Came Ron today on another matter, you can forget him - he is definitely a 'lost cause' (more on that in a day or two)

Afterthought (2): if any scientists amongst my readers can enlighten me on what 'net zero energy use' is and how one achieves it, I would love to know!
