I have recently attended the World Real Estate Congress in Luxemburg. Delegates from all facets of real estate from around the world attended the event including urban planners, architects commercial and domestic builders, estate agents etc. It was enlightening to see how far ahead the European building trend is in relation to the use of renewable energy initiatives. I will be advising clients and using these initiatives in our further developments and projects
