Die Ersparnis bei der Heizenergie wird durch ein neues Grundprinzip der Heizung ermöglicht, das die Wärmeverteilung effizienter als das herkömmliche System organisiert. Jeder Heizkörper wird nur bei Bedarf mit Wärme versorgt – nicht von einer großen, zentralen Umwälzpumpe im Keller, sondern durch dezentrale Miniaturpumpen, die an den Heizkörpern selbst befestigt werden. Hierdurch wird eine schnellere, genauere und damit deutlich effizientere Erwärmung der Heizflächen bewirkt.

"Green, low-carbon and environmental protection are the themes of the World Expo," said Shou Ziqi, director of the commission. "The whole process of Expo designing, construction, operation and after-Expo use are all in line with the concept." Since most Expo pavilions are temporary constructions, many of them have been built using environmental friendly materials that can be recycled after they are dismantled.

According to the European Commission, more than 20% of EU’s energy consumption is wasted through inefficiency. A large part of the available energy saving potential lies within buildings. This potential can be effectively targeted using energy services and other energy end-use efficiency measures.

For many of these items it can be said that various at least partly high quality material is available in most of the EU Member States (like software tools for calculating thermal bridges, thermal bridges atlases and promotion of good practice guidance). It would be desirable that the material is used more often by building practitioners and that some countries catch up with the others. Software for calculating thermal bridges should be validated and the validation documentation should be published.

The EPBD requires Member States to define building energy performance requirements... but did the Member States take this opportunity to strengthen their existing legislation? Member States are free to define their calculation methods and their requirements... Is it therefore possible to compare requirements across Europe? If yes, are the requirements from one country more severe than those of neighbouring countries?
