Buildings in EU27 Member States represent up to 24 billion m2 of floor space, responsible for 40% of Europe’s energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions – both key contributors to climate change. In response, a number of European directives promoting energy efficiency and ambitious goals for achieving nearly zero energy buildings will be enforced in the coming years.   Public buildings are expected to meet these challenges and act as frontrunners. It is time to use the wealth of resources already at our disposal to accelerate change.
