Project Abstract
Building the way to Europe’s sustainable future

Buildings account for a large percentage of energy consumption and CO2 emissions. According to the European Commission's Energy Performance of Buildings Directive and the EU’s 2030 targets, newly erected buildings should be built with peak energy efficiency in mind. Therefore, it is deemed necessary to build according to the highest standards, using the best materials. EU-funded iclimabuilt aims to support small high-tech firms to scale up and cope with the increasing technological complexity, build the connection between suppliers and users, and translate research results into innovations for the building envelope's materials and technical systems. The project aims to greatly improve buildings' energy efficiency by developing the necessary materials and taking climate considerations into account to deliver Europe’s sustainable buildings of the future.
