Buildings are the largest consumer of energy in the European union, using 40% of all energy pro-duced.*
An efficient way to reduce this consumption is to install proper solar protection systems to control the heat and sunlight entering a building. Awnings and screens help to save energy all year round. in summer they help to keep heat from entering and in winter they help to keep it in. This reduces the need for air-conditioning and heating, which in turn reduces electrical consumption and co2 emissions.
