Taxes and renewable energy surcharges raises the amount of electricity bills in countries increasingly relying on renewable energy sources such as wind power
Today, buildings represent the sector with the highest energy consumption in Europe, covering almost 40 % of the energy demand.
Retrofitting districts with sustainable energy systems can be a success if enough data is available to analyse the suitability of each chosen energy-saving solution
Passive technologies can maximise primary energy reduction and economic investment in existing buildings
Understanding which extreme weather events may have caused problems in the past leads to assess the potential impact of future such events on infrastructures.
A novel modular technology paves the way for a potential 50% decrease in monthly energy bills of public buildings
By relying on district heating combined with heat and power production, municipalities in Sweden power their cities from renewable energy sources.
Meteorologists use data of past weather events and climate modelling to improve weather warnings for operators of transport, energy and communication infrastructure
Retrofitting a district is quite different from retrofitting a single building: the technological challenges involved are far greater.
