Hannover, 22.11.2012 – More than half of the overall world population is living in urban areas - with rising tendency.

The “review and research” phase of the REQUEST programme aimed to identify best practices across Europe for increasing the uptake of EPC recommendations and promoting an integrated supply chain for low-carbonrenovation. In total, 95 case studies were identified and analysed – 77 from the REQUEST partner countries and 18 from non-participating countries (EU and beyond). 29 of these were considered best practice.

ESTEC 2011 is setting new trends for solar thermal! For the first time, the biennial European Solar Thermal Energy Conference is being held outside Germany, the largest European market by far. In selecting France as the host country, ESTIF and ENERPLAN - the co-organizer of ESTEC 2011 - wanted to stress that the solar thermal market growth is increasingly coming from other large European countries, and in choosing Marseille, the gateway to the Mediterranean, highlight this region’s huge potential both from the northern and southern shores.
