One of the major challenges today is the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. In this context, small buildings and neighbourhoods account for approx. 40% of the overall energy consumption in Europe. While presenting first results at its booth at CeBIT 2012, the FP7 EU project SmartCoDe demonstrated to Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the European Commission, that microelectronics can be the key enabling technology to solve the problems.
