Aiming for Zero Emissions

Carried out as a brownfield investment, the refurbishment of the REC Conference Center was unique in that the new building is optimally capable of operating with a long-term zero energy balance.

The retrofitting project was financed mainly by the Italian Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea. Additional financial support was provided by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the European Economic Area (EEA) Financial Mechanism. The new building, with its innovative technological solutions, serves as a regional model of green building and energy efficiency.
