Great prospects exist for energy conservation in buildings, and Greek entrepreneurs are called on to turn the challenge into an opportunity by investing in innovation, and in new methods and products for energy conservation, Federation of Hellenic Enterprises (SEB viable development council president E. Vidalis said on Wednesday morning, inaugurating a SEB symposium on energy efficiency in buildings.

Vidalis said that 40 percent of the energy consumption in Greece is consumed in buildings, the largest proportion in the EU countries.

The present model of energy consumption and irrational use of natural resources is not viable, Vidalis warned.

According to figures he presented at the symposium, buildings give off 38 percent of overall greenhouse gases internationally, compared with 33 percent by industries and 26 percent by transport.

Vidalis stressed that energy consumption is directly linked with the everyday lives and habits of the consumers.
