Buildings are the largest consumer of energy in the European Union, accounting for 40% of the total energy produced*. An effective way to reduce this consumption is to install appropriate solar protection systems that control the heat and light that reaches the buildings.
Awnings and screens save energy throughout the year, since in summer they reduce the level of heat that enters the building and in winter they prevent heat loss. In this way, the consumption of the air conditioners is reduced, saving on electricity and avoiding higher CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.
