The award will honor outstanding projects using ETICS

For the first time ever the EAE Award 2021 ceremony will be included in the program of the 5th European ETICS Forum , scheduled for 16th September 2021. The award aims to honour amazing examples of energy-efficient projects from across Europe using ETICS.

Buildings play a crucial role. The building stock accounts for 36% of Europe’s CO2 emissions and 40% of Europe’s energy demand. It offers a huge leverage to contribute not only to environmental protection, but also to good health, living comfort and economic growth. This requires that all new buildings comply already with the nZEB standard as they will not undergo thermal renovation before 2050. Even more important: without significantly increasing renovation rates and renovation depths of the current building stock, Europe will fail to achieve its ambitions.

The new EAE Award aims to demonstrate that energy-efficient buildings and superb architecture go hand in hand. Our aim is to reward and showcase innovative technical, sustainable, and aesthetical solutions. Awarded projects will be used to further promote the benefits of energy-efficient facades. Transforming theory into real buildings will help to accelerate the market uptake and motivate building owners recognise the full benefits in favor of thermally improved façade systems.
