This Paper is devoted to the analytical investigation of Triple Net Zero Building energy consumption for climate conditions of Dnipro, Ukraine. The results are based on a nZEB construction literature survey, and case study. The obtained data reveal that the specific energy consumption of 9.64 kWh/m2 does not exceed the standard of the Passive House Institute of 15 kWh/m2. The energy consumption for cooling is only 0.4 kWh/m2 thanks to the use of the ventilation system with local heat recovery equipment in each room. This leads to the energy consumption of the ventilation system in the amount of 1.2 kWh/m2. The energy consumption of the building for DHW production is 8.73 kWh/m2. The energy consumption of the building for lighting is 9.69 kWh/m2. Therefore, the total energy consumption of the building will be 29.66 kWh/m2. The indicated result is approximately twice less than the maximum according to the Passive House Institute standard – 65 kWh/m2.
