Low-Cost/Low-Energy Buildings in the Czech Republic

Project Summary

The project is to help overcome barriers preventing the widespread use of low cost/low energy technologies in the Czech residential housing sector. These are lack of experience in designing and constructing low cost/low energy buildings, and limited access to commercial sources of financing for relevant investments. The project will also help develop advanced energy standards for residential buildings and facilitate their adoption by the Czech government. The removal of these barriers will lead to estimated greenhouse gas reductions of about 25% in the residential housing sector of the Czech republic by the year 2010, i.e., 650,000 tonnes per year.
