Construction and the clean energy transition: EU Energy Day
On 24 July, an EU Energy Day took place at EXPO 2017. Energy stakeholders from all over the world met to discuss the technologies driving the clean energy transition, with a special focus on buildings and cities. The first of the day's three panels was on 'Clean energy solutions for buildings'.
The discussion of clean energy and buildings brought together experts from Europe and beyond. They considered topics including nearly zero-energy buildings, the use of 3D printing in energy-efficient building construction, and integrating solar panels into new buildings. They also emphasised the importance of pooling knowledge and expertise internationally in the construction of buildings that are energy efficient and make maximum use of renewable energy.
