14 countries and the European Commission had participated in the IEA Task 13 project "Advanced Soar Low Energy Dwellings" under the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme. Within the project each participating country has analysed and designed 1 or 2 low energy houses/buildings in close co-operation with the other participants. The aim was to achieve the lowest possible total energy consumption for heating, domestic hot water and use of electricity. A general difficulty with realisation of the design projects has delayed the finishing of the buildings and the connected monitoring programs beyond the dead line of task 13. As a result the final IEA Technical Report contains only a limited number of monitored results. The main goal of the project is to collect available material from the participants in task 13 concerning measured and calculated results and present the main results of the different projects in one report. The report will give a total overview of the different buildings and the achieved results: 1) a short description of the individual houses and the special energy saving techniques used, 2) expected and monitored results from a wide range of different building types and 3) a description of the achieved experiences.
