Title: Energy Efficient Construction and Renovation in Alpine Region
The main objective of this campaign is to promote the knowledge and the know-how for energy efficient construction and renovation in the whole Alpine region. At the same time the energy saving capability and added value potential from local wood processing should be centralized. In 2005 CIPRA Österreich was founded to implement this international core theme in Austria. An important focus thereby was to promote passive energy and low energy building construction with wood for public buildings. Meetings, excursions and a folder with much background information worked to propagate knowledge.
