The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the building sector is key to reach climate and energy goals. At the same time rapid urbanization is a global megatrend. Most cities are facing major challenges due to increasing population and climate change. The main areas are innovative buildings, urban planning, and integrated energy supply.
