The UN City wins the EU's GreenBuilding Award

The award is part of the Green Building Program, which aims to improve energy efficiency and expand the integration of renewable energy in non-residential buildings in Europe.

The UN city is built as a low energy class 1-house under the Danish Building Code 08, which designates an energy efficient building that uses less than 50 kWh. per m2 per year for heating, cooling, lighting, ventilation and so on.

Among the many sustainable features there will be a large photovoltaic system on the roof and cooling will occur in sea water. The building can accommodate up to 1,750 jobs, and many employees are expected to take the building into service in early 2013.
