Energy use in buildings: use it better, use it less

850 views

On average, we spend 90% of our time inside buildings in Europe. The energy that we consume there accounts for 40% of total European Union consumption. That’s more than the share of industry and transport. But many buildings perform poorly in energy terms. That’s why a new European directive will come into force in January 2006. It will increase the requirements regarding energy performance in residential and office buildings in the whole of the European Union The report was filmed in Belgium, Portugal, the Czech Republic and Austria. It illustrates the main points of the Directive regarding the energy performance of buildings and includes interviews with the following: Andris Piebalgs, European Commissioner for Energy Gerhard Dell, Director of "O.Ö Energiesparverband", Upper Austria Josef Hofer and Angela Hofer, owners Dana Kadelova, tenant (Czech Republic) Eduardo Maldonado, Energy Adviser (Portugal) Alain Sagne, Secretary-General of the Architects’ Council of Europe Catarina Freitas, Director of Planning Department, Almada Environment House (Portugal)
