European High Quality and Low Energy Architecture (EULEB)

Download PDFDownload PDF
EULEB aimed to help people learn from positive examples which already exist in the building sector. Project participants examined 25 high profile public buildings in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Spain, and informed the market on the high quality low energy features they possessed, including design, consumption levels and energy data.

Results

  • Multilingual CD containing information on 25 public buildings from all over Europe, including data on energy consumption, construction, costs and comfort. Available in five languages. Download now from the web-site.
  • The full content of the CD is available on-line for widespread access.
  • Around 150 000 copies were widely distributed via trade and specialist magazines.
  • A need for a combination of theoretical information and practical experiences was identified. The available information meets these needs.
  • A series of lectures took place, targeting architects, engineers, investors, property developers and other key actors from the building market, introducing them to the best practice examples identified.

Lessons learned

  • Many building market actors are unaware of, or insecure about, the advantages of low energy architecture
  • Providing measured data from existing buildings is expected to illuminate an area in which a lack of information or negative examples have led to prejudices against promising innovations and strategies
