Very low energy buildings

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

Backed by its mission to protect the Pacific Northwest’s natural environment and promote healthy and sustainable ecosystems, the Bullitt Foundation wanted their new headquarters to be built to the highest level of sustainability. They also wanted the building to be a demonstration project that would set a new standard for developers, architects, engineers and contractors.

The EU, in light of the 2030 and 2050 energy and climate goals, has adopted an ambitious vision for the energy performance of its buildings among other measures. This is because the building sector still represents about 40% of energy consumption in the EU with the largest cost-effective savings potential. However, in order to meet this vision, the construction sector must be ready to deliver high-performance retrofits and nearly zero energy buildings. As in every field, this would require a number of qualified professionals and building workers.

España es quizás el mercado solar europeo más atractivo en la actualidad. Nuestro país parece tomar conciencia de su posición como localización europea con más horas de sol año y se ha lanzado definitivamente al desarrollo de nuevas instalaciones fotovoltaicas, tanto grandes plantas procedentes de las adjudicaciones de las subastas, proyectos PPA, plantas ‘merchant’, así como generación distribuida a través de autoconsumo, especialmente en el sector comercial e industrial.
