Buildsmart: Energy Efficient Solutions Ready for Market

A number of energy-efficient new construction projects with very low energy consumption are under way around Europe. The city of Malmö in Sweden is running the EU-project Buildsmart with a consortium including WSP, IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, the Basque government, Tecnalia, Codema and the construction development companies Skanska, Roth Fastigheter and FCC. The purpose of Buildsmart is to demonstrate and mainstream cost-effective technologies and methods in the design of buildings with very low energy consumption in different European climates. The project also has a strong focus on energy-related behavioural issues, recognizing the role end-users play on energy use in buildings.
The website contains several case studies and training materials, including webinars and publications.
