As the world becomes increasingly urbananised and cities grow larger and more densely populated so the energy consumption as well as the CO² emission increases.
The building sector is responsible for 40% of the total energy consumption and CO² emissions in the world. This has created a demand for a new way of designing projects and building renovations.
Reacting to this situation, more and more local authorities are demanding that their new development projects fulfill the highest requirements in terms of energy efficiency while providing the best comfort possible for their inhabitants.
