Researchers at ETH Zurich have created a machine that controls the setting rate of concrete to offer a "seamless transition between casting and 3D printing" so that structures can be made that use less material.
The system called Fast Complexity combines two existing technologies for creating concrete forms – 3D printing concrete and casting into formwork.

The H2020 Penny Project - Psychological social & financial barriers to energy efficiency - applies a behavioural science approach to better understand individual behaviour in the domain of energy efficiency. In particular, the project seeks to advance the understanding of consumer decisions in relation to both the use of energy and the adoption of energy-efficient technologies.

Energy-efficient buildings have the potential to play a key role in EU energy transition. In the United States, several energy utilities have recently piloted and launched buildings Pay-for-Performance (P4P) programmes making use of possibilities offered by energy metering technologies that provide greater certainty over energy savings and drive improved performance.

Linked Data technologies have been developed in order to connect concepts in a structured way, enhancing machine readability and enabling many features like semantic queries. The potential of such technologies is wide in many fields, in particular in the construction sector, which could benefit in many ways by their application.

The renovation sector is crucial for a sustainable development of the construction market. Buildings account for 40% of the energy consumed today in EU, but annual renovation rates are limited to 0.4/1.2% in Europe. Also, a large share of buildings has more than 40 years and it is not adequately heated, bringing to a low efficiency of the building stock in terms of energy and comfort1.
