Build-Interest’s main objective is to structurally reduce uncertainty and increase trust in investments in sustainable energy in buildings. This is achieved mainly through reinforcing the trust of investors in sustainable energy and energy efficiency projects, and by reinforcement of the links and creation of a structural, long-term dialogue between public policies, investors and innovative companies.
Among Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) three core energy goals, energy efficiency stands out as an opportunity that all individuals, businesses and governments can take advantage of. Energy efficiency offers a range of opportunities to improve business productivity and curb carbon emissions at the same time.
The EU-funded project ExcEED takes the pulse of the actual energy consumed by last generation of buildings.

Century after century, home along the east-central coast of the Arabian Peninsula generally meant a house of mud or coral brick, roofed with palm thatch, in a small town or settlement. Food staples were local dates and rice, as well as fish that came to shore aboard dhows powered by the winds. Cooking was fueled by wood, carried to the coast by camel from interior oases. It was an economy powered, directly and indirectly, by the sun.
