GreenTech 01 - EEBC


Energy Efficient Buildings and Communities

The most effective, ecological and economical way towards a solution for our energy problems is an increase of energy efficiency in all areas relevant to our living. The building sector consumes about 40 % of final energy in European countries and therefore presents an area with a huge potential for energy savings. The project aims to define how resources can be used more efficiently in the building sector and to further develop the extensive measures at hand in the sector to increase energy efficiency. Plus-Energy houses, i.e. buildings that produce more energy than they consume on an annual basis, can only be achieved gradually but recent technological developments provide promising complementary solutions. As energy consumption related to buildings and mobility are tightly interwoven, and given that the building sector generates the largest material flows, the project will particulary focus on the individual built structure as part of an associated district, community and town  and on how resources could be used more efficiently and their central role in life-cycle assessment.
