EeB.NMP.2010-1 New nanotechnology based high
performance insulation systems for energy efficiency
Rationale
•
•
Buildings in Europe
• 40% Energy Demand
• 36% CO2 Emissions
“Energy
Performance”
of
an
average European building is poor.
The majority of energy in a building
is spent to satisfy heating and
cooling demands
Nanotechnology & Insulation Materials
• Insulating materials keep the temperature constant in an enclosed space
such as a house, either warmer or colder than the surroundings.
• According to ECOFYS the addition of thermal insulation to existing
buildings in Europe could decrease current building energy costs and
carbon dioxide emissions by some 42% or 350 million tonnes of CO2
emissions
• Nanotechnology offers high potential for enhanced insulation
