Building the Future is an ambitious energy efficiency programme that foresees over 3 million energy saving interventions in Greek residential and commercial buildings by 2020. The programme was launched on April 9, 2012 and is planned to be completed in year 2020.
The programme is a partnership between the public and private sector, aiming to provide citizens that wish to refurbish their buildings, with certified, high-standard products at better prices than current market prices.

Level 2: Demonstration actions
Demonstration of innovative systems and products in large-scale projects – Zero energy buildings.
Level 3: Research and innovation
