Luminescent 'reactors' could enhance energy sustainability of buildings   Luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs) are a promising technology for building integrated photovoltaics. However, optical loss mechanisms such as light scattering are preventing prototype devices from achieving the theoretical energy conversion efficiencies.

The European Union’s decarbonisation and energy goals are having a positive impact on society at the European, national, regional and local level. However, the benefits of energy efficiency have yet to be fully understood and accepted by stakeholders. The EU-funded EEW4 project aims to support public authorities in implementing the Energy Union and achieving wide support for the benefits of decarbonisation and energy efficiency.

A new online GIS tool is helping designers, researchers and policymakers to understand how different European climates and cultures can influence energy demand in buildings. Researchers from RMIT University, Eurac Research and University Ca’ Foscari Venezia have launched an innovative GIS map with a difference: The European Climate and Cultural Atlas for Plus Energy Building Design – the 2CAP-Energy Atlas.
