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.

Earthquakes, buildings and green energy: Turkey’s balancing act   While Turkey is well known as a hot and sunny holiday destination, it also faces low temperatures, which means it has both substantial heating and cooling needs for its building stock. The country also lies in one of the world’s most active seismic zones and energy efficiency measures need to be earthquake resistant.
