38,5% of energy savings in CUBE 2020? It's possible.   The building Quai Vendeuvre won the grand prize of the energy savings contest CUBE 2020 in 2016. While the 3rd edition of the contest just started, let’s ask the IFPEB’s director Cedric Borel about the score of the second edition’s winner, who made 38,5% of energy savings within a year!  You said 38,5%, really? How is that possible?   Marguerite Dornier: You said 38,5%, right? It’s huge, isn’t it?

Many construction projects always have one thing in common – the energy infrastructure is key. The guidelines are clear: less CO2 emissions, better lifetime and improved climate protection, all achieved through both intention and action. The influence of insulation on efficiency and cost savings should be quantified and considered in every decision. A new calculation tool  has been launched in order to provide detailed answers to these questions.
