People spend up to 90% of their lives indoors, so it is perhaps not surprising that the quality of the environment created has a significant impact on their health and well-being. What is perhaps even more surprising is that the indoor air quality of some buildings, including modern low energy buildings, has been shown to be poorer than urban outdoor air quality.

A range of breakthrough eco-building solutions which tackle the emerging problem of indoor air quality have been presented by the ECO-SEE project at the Ecobuild construction fair in London.   The solutions include novel insulation, coating and panel products which improve air quality by passively regulating humidity, capturing VOCs, and removing indoor organic pollutants through photocatalysis. External and internal wall panels have also been developed, in addition to design tools to support end users.

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?

This is the final report of the project “European Energy Service Initiative towards the EU 2020 energy saving targets” (EESI 2020), which was implemented between 2013 and 2016 by a consortium of European energy agencies and energy experts with support of the European Commission’s Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) Programme. The project has been addressing ways to improve the impact of Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) in 9 European regions.
