Dear Reader,

Everybody is aware that energy consumption has been dramatically rising during the last decades all over the world. The ‘traditional way of life’ has been more and more replaced by ‘modern technologies’. The result is an overconsumption of natural resources, especially of non-renewable energies.

Although people have realized that energy consumption has to be reduced considerably in order to preserve both our environment and our health, little is made in this direction, especially in the building industry.

This edition of BASIN-News shall contribute to make responsible people aware, that alternatives for reducing energy in the building and construction sector exist and are used successfully.
