Abstract

The programme 'ERA17 for an energy-smart built environment 2017' seeks to provide answers to the challenges posed to the built environment by climate change mitigation. The programme was drawn up as a collaborative effort, with participation of the Ministry of the Environment, the Finnish Innovation Fund (Sitra) and the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation (Tekes). Additional support was provided by a task force, including leaders from business, research and the public administration, led by the Finnish Minister of Housing, Jan Vapaavuori. Since energy consumption and use required for construction amounts to over 40% of final energy consumption and nearly 40% of greenhouse gas emissions, improving the built environment plays a key role in mitigating climate change and creating a competitive and sustainable society. If we include the impact of traffic, which is to a large extent defined by community structure, these figures are even higher. The task force has drawn up a comprehensive action plan to improve the energy efficiency of the built environment, reduce emissions, and promote the use of renewable energy. The target is to be a pioneer in energy-smartness by 2017, the national jubilee year, and, by 2050, to make the Finnish built environment the  More>>
