Energy in Minds!

Energy in Minds! was realised over a period of five years in four European communities - Weiz-Gleisdorf (Austria), Falkenberg (Sweden), Zlín (Czech republic), and Neckarsulm (Germany). The project aimed to reduce the use of fossil energy and CO2 emissions in the building sector by 20 to 30% in the four communities within a five-year period. To... Continue reading
