EULEB – EUropean high quality and Low Energy Buildings
The EU-funded project “EUropean high quality Low Energy Buildings" informs about existing, public, high quality and low energy non-residential buildings from all over Europe. The EULEB-website shows data, plans, pictures, video clips, diagrams etc. of 25 European buildings in operation. Detail principals and technologies of sustainability are described as well as properties like economy, energy efficiency, and comfort. All information is available in five languages. Project partners: Four European universities and REHVA – Federation of European Heating Ventilation and Air-conditioning, TU Dortmund being the coordinating partner.
