One of the most significant potential areas for saving energy and greenhouse gases is the thermal renovation of buildings. But we are not renovating enough. The method needs to change, and this will probably happen via industrialisation. Industrialisation, boosted by the European EnergieSprong project, means improved performance and quality of use.
Stéphanie Barrault, head of the Circular Design Experience project: applying all of the circular-economy principles to the construction sector
In France, the construction sector generates more than 40 million tonnes of waste every year and consumes large quantities of resources to meet the needs of renovation and new construction.
