The used energy efficiency technologies include new insulation materials, high efficient windows and phase change material as well as efficient energy supply technologies like a micro combined heat and power unit, fuel cells, heat pump and photovoltaic panels. The building is a transportable, fully functional light-weight construction and produces more energy than it consumes. A so-called intelligent energy reader indicates possible electrical energy savings. The building is made of sustainable, natural and recycable materials.

NEEAPS are intended to stimulate the translation of energy savings objectives into concrete measures and actions at the level of each Member State, create dialogue between the Commission and Member States and set implementation milestones. For the purpose of the first NEEAP each Member State should have adopted an overall national indicative savings target of 9 % or higher, to be achieved and measured in 2016 and an intermediate national indicative savings target to be achieved in 2010.

The European Union (EU) is leading the global fight against climate change, and has made it a top priority. Its ambitious targets are spelt out in the EU Climate Action and Renewable Energy Package , which commits Member States to curb their CO2 emissions by at least 20% by 2020. Signatories of the Covenant of Mayors contribute to these policy objectives through a formal commitment to go beyond this target through the implementation of their Sustainable Energy Action Plan.
