Energy Efficient Buildings

Energy used in buildings (both residential and commercial) accounts for a significant percentage of the country’s total energy consumption. This percentage is highly dependent on the degree of electrification, the level of urbanization, the size of the building area per capita, the prevailing climate, as well as the national
and local policies to promote energy efficiency. Energy-efficient buildings, passive houses and zero-energy buildings are a step towards lower energy consumption, better living conditions and the achievement of climate goals.

Energy-efficient buildings is one of cluster’s operational fields that unites the manufacturers of energy-efficient buildings, its equipment and facilities, enabling members  to cooperate.
