The renovation of this house was made by focusing on renewable energy. Renewable energies are inexhaustible – unlike fossil fuels such as coal, oil and uranium. These are:

  • solar thermal (solar hot water)
  • solar photovoltaic (solar power)
  • wind energy (wind farms)
  • energy water (hydroelectric dams)
  • biomass (eg wood burning)
  • geothermal energy (eg heat pumps air / water).
