ECO-Life: Sustainable Zero Carbon ECO-Town Developments Improving Quality of Life across EU (ECO-LIFE)

In three European countries (Belgium, Denmark and Lithuania), urban areas are transformed into sustainable zero-carbon communities. Innovative energy efficiency measures and technologies with 100% renewable energy sources are demonstrated and integrated in an overall sustainable neighbourhood design. The building physics section of Ghent University leads the energy monitoring and performance assessment of the communities, buildings and technologies (http://www.ecolife-project.eu/index.html).
