Concept:   The EU’s building stock is relatively old. Half of all homes in most EU countries were built pre-1970 and before the first thermal regulations.   This is why upgrading the energy efficiency of the building envelope – the physical barrier between indoor and unconditioned environment – is important.

Introduction   3D printing (sometimes referred to as Additive Manufacturing (AM)) is the computer-controlled sequential layering of materials to create three-dimensional shapes. It is particularly useful for prototyping and for the manufacture of geometrically complex components.   It was first developed in the 1980s, but at that time was a difficult and expensive operation and so had few applications.

The building sector presents a considerable unexploited potential for cost-effective energy savings. Nearly Zero-Energy Building (NZEB) standards have become a mandatory requirement in Europe for new construction from 2020, however increasing the rate, depth, quality and effectiveness of building renovation remains a challenge since the current European average rate of renovation is only 1.2 % per year

My Europe in 2050 lets you choose how we will change the European "Machine" in the next decades. How we will move, live, eat and consume, how we will change the agriculture, transport, energy generation, building sector and production systems.   Explore how you can keep the machine's output below 30 gigatons of greenhouse gases. This is the budget available for Europe if we want to take a fair reduction share to keep the 1.5° C target formulated in the Paris Agreement.
