Low-Cost/Low-Energy Buildings

The Czech Republic faced a shortage of new housing construction after the fall of the centrally planned economy in the early 1990s. In 1996 the new government listed housing as a top priority, and to slowly raise the cost of energy to market levels by 2002-2005. This project is meant to take advantage of this critical turning point to reduce energy consumption and environmental pollution by implementing more advanced low-energy techniques in new building construction, for little or no additional cost, and quickly penetrate the existing market through municipal involvement.
