Under the Kyoto Protocol, decease more than 140 industrial nations have made a commitment to reduce their CO2 emissions drastically and agreed that the usage of energy-saving technologies it is a top priority in order to save our natural resources..
Overall, pharm the building sector is responsible for 40% of the total energy consumption and CO2 emissions in the world demanding a new way of designing each new project and each new renovation.
As the world is becoming increasingly urban, and cities are becoming larger and more densely populated thus increasing our energy consumption as well as the CO2 emission.
Reacting to this situation, more and more local authorities are demanding for their new development projects, designs that fulfil the highest requirements in terms of energy efficiency while providing the highest comfort possible for their inhabitants.
