    Abstract

    Over the last year there have been remarkable changes in the politicians' attitude in Denmark and in the EU member states to the climate changes. This was provoked by the increasing rate of gale activity and flooding in Denmark and Europe as well as in many other places in the world over the last years. This brings forward an increasing challenge to plan, design and build more sustainable buildings in order to be able to contribute to or reduce the use of energy for heating and cooling in new housing projects and thereby bring down the emission of CO2 when using less fossil fuel. This is crucial since carbon dioxide is one of the so called greenhouse gasses playing a major role in the overheating of the globe. Thus there is focus on reducing the CO2-level on a national and global level. This paper will look upon changes in interest and the different types of approaches to sustainable design of buildings and show examples of houses that can minimise the use of energy for heating and cooling in shape of detached houses, sky scrapers and some student's projects with high raised houses.
