Energy Efficiency in Construction in the Baltic Sea Region

Energy accounts for 80% of greenhouse gas emissions, causing climate change and global warming. According to Eurostat energy consumption in residential buildings in the Baltic Sea Region countries comes to about one third of final energy consumption. The most significant part of energy used in residential buildings is for heating purposes and hot water preparation.

Buildings can be analysed in two aspects in terms of energy: buildings as consumers of energy and buildings as producers of energy.
Implementation of technologies for improving energy efficiency of buildings allows to reduce energy consumption. Important points are insulation materials, heat recovery, elimination of thermal bridges and appropriate architectural solutions.

The role of building in producing energy is designated by implementing technologies such as solar thermal systems, heat pumps and photovoltaics (PV), and thereby increasing the share of renewable energy.
Within the framework of the SPIN project urgent innovations in the field of energy efficiency was identified. Some of innovation highlights from Baltic Sea Region countries are presented below.

SPIN: Privat Profits - Public Benefits!

The SPIN project aims at enhancing “Sustainable Production through Innovation in SMEs”. SPIN is a business project and not a research project. It runs for 3 years (until January 2012) and is supported by the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) Programme 2007-2013 of the European Union. SPIN brings together some of the most important institutions for eco-innovations in the Baltic Sea Region and is supported by numerous national governments, sector associations, research bodies and transnational NGOs.
