Active House Alliance takes part in the EU Sustainable Energy Week
On 23 June the Active House Alliance held a Workshop organised in the framework of the EU Sustainable Energy Week in Brussels. The purpose of the event was to prepare a Guideline document for architects and engineers who wish to develop Active House projects based on the principle of designing and renovating healthier and more comfortable buildings without negative environmental impacts.
The Guideline will address the process of planning the construction of an Active House and its aim is to enable interested professionals to create sustainable buildings anywhere in the world.
Commenting on the Brussels meeting, the Secretary General of the Active House, Kurt Emil Eriksen said: “We feel that it is highly relevant to promote the Active House vision for sustainable buildings at a time when European leaders are discussing the 2030 energy and climate policy framework. The recent European Energy Security Strategy highlighted that buildings should be a priority for EU action on energy efficiency. Active House can help achieve energy efficiency goals and because we also focus on Comfort and Environment in buildings, we can help reaching supplementary goals on health and environment.”
The Board of Directors and the Advisory Board of the Active House Alliance will be present
during the EU Sustainable Energy Week to discuss the next steps of the Alliance. It is the
intention to discuss further development and strategic cooperation with other
Members of the alliance will participate as speakers at relevant conferences throughout
the EU Sustainable Energy Week.
