What exactly is Sustainable Construction? Almost half of our country’s energy consumption corresponds to the energy consumed over the life of the buildings. Therefore, improving efficiency in terms of energy consumption is essential to combat climate change.
At ACCIONA, we design construction systems for a new model of energy efficient building. To do so, we have a specialized R&D center that follows different lines of research that pursue the development of nano-materials and cutting-edge materials, new construction processes and energy efficient building.
The most outstanding example is the ACCIONA Solar head offices in Navarre, a zero emissions building. This building consumes 52% less energy than a similar conventional one thanks to the application of a broad range of energy efficient measures, and covers 48% of its energy needs via PV solar (electricity), solar thermal and biodiesel (HVAC).
