About the goals of the database


Raising the Problem
The energy demand of the activities in the building sector in Hungary concerning the production, building in, usage and afterlife of materials can reach 40-50% of the total national energy consumption, therefore it is of utmost importance to deal with the rationalisation of building-related energy consumption (to increase energy-efficiency, to use renewable energy resources, to build in materials with low primary energy content).

Who is this Database for...
The authors of this database want to show a real choice to architects, constructors, builders, investors, dwellers, who feel responsible for their environment. This database is most useful for constructing and reconstructing low-rise living-houses.
