According to recent estimates, the construction sector accounts for 40% of the energy consumption and 36% of greenhouse gas emissions in Europe. Decarbonising the building stock has therefore become one of the strategic priorities of the European Union and is among the main pillars of the European Green Deal.

I wouldn’t call the first building I worked in very smart. My desk was in a low walled cube in the middle of the “cube city” surrounded by cinder block walls. The air quality depended on what section you were in, and the temperature varied every 20 feet. There were no crowd-based thermostats to keep everyone happy.
