Thrifty Number-Crunchers Keep Their Cool

 

The European Commission's Directorate-General for Energy and Transport forecasts that energy consumption for air-conditioning units will double between now and 2020. Yet half of the expected rise could be offset by improved energy efficiency in buildings, the forecast goes on to say. At the same time, the European Union undertook upon signing the Kyoto Protocol to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by eight percent between 2008 and 2012. To do so, the EU member states are establishing minimum performance requirements for the energy efficiency of new and existing buildings. Compliance with these requirements will be regularly tested. This presents a challenge for architects who have to meet these goals by using innovative building materials.
