Energy efficiency is a key trend in construction

The architectural materials that are chosen play an important role in creating climate-wise cities. Low-energy and passive-energy homes and dense urban structures play a key role in improving energy efficiency in cities. Environmental and energy certificates are setting ambitious goals for design and construction.

Wood construction is traditionally a distinctive part of Northern European architecture. Ecological innovations that address current problems are arising from this tradition. For example, construction technologies related to multistorey timber buildings are developing rapidly: wood high-rises are already being erected.

Climate-wise residential areas and districts are being created by means of city planning. Examples of these include the Kuninkaantammi ecological residential area and the Honkasuo passive-energy home project (2014–2020) in Helsinki. To fight climate change, cities are also investing in rail traffic and bicycle route systems.

By visiting sites and studying projects first-hand, you will be able to see how energy efficiency is being improved in practice.
