Construction in Cities - Renewable Energy Training
started this project in Spring 2009 in partnership with the Non-Conventional
Energy Development Center (NCEDC), Pyongyang. It was
sucessfully finished in summer 2014.
project aimed at the dissemination of the knowledge about
construction work (design, planning, and construction) in
the use of alternative energy sources (wind, sun, and biogas).
This was demonstrated in a practical manner with the
construction a energy efficient farmhouse based on current
in Switzerland / Europe (Minergie / Minergie-P / ...). The building is aimed to be a model for further
the country. The know-how about implementing energy efficient
in design and construction work was transferred to over 100
specialists that are able to train others.
