Buildings or developments that display best practice outcomes in energy efficiency, are powered by renewable energy, and as such have been verified and certified as "net zero energy and/or carbon" projects.
The LUCIA building, built by the University of Valladolid, will be used for laboratories and will provide areas for spin-offs related to nutrition, food, and dietetics; metabolopathies as well as the development of the Digital Knowledge Society. It will offer the chance to investigate a range of features that will shed light on other as yet unexplored areas, using only renewable energies. Strategies lay in the fields of reducing energy demands through bioclimatic design, efficient systems, use of local resources and important training and dissemination activities, which are provided to the user’s implication. The integral use of local resources (bio-mass) implies researching in an area with great potential in local job creation.
