Innovative High Performance Thermal Building Insulation Materials - Todays State-of-the-Art and Beyond Tomorrow

Apr 02, 2012

Buildings constitute a substantial part of the world’s total energy consumption, thus savings within the building sector will be essential, both for existing and new solutions constitute one of the key fields. Recent studies (McKinsey 2009) point out that energy efficiency measures are the most cost-effective ones, whereas measures like e.g. solar photovoltaics and wind energy are far less cost-effective than insulation retrofit for buildings.
