Brussels Environment

Brussels is known for making its buildings more ‘passive’ or energy efficient. Regulations are in place to meet the highest energy saving standards for constructing new buildings or retrofitting older structures. Brussels-Capital Region also has an effective mechanism in place to train professionals in more efficient building techniques, and has created incentives for young professionals to gain real experience in making more high energy performance buildings. From the training workshops a building contest between schools to new ‘passive’ nurseries, Brussels is moving towards a more energy efficient future.
