Buildings are responsible for about 50 % of the countrywide energy consumption. The EU-carbon roadmap is envisioning a 90% carbon reduction of the building sector until 2050. This requires a re-clad- ding of the entire building stock within the European Union – other countries will certainly follow.

Combined with insulation, fabrics can potentially play a significant role in this re-cladding task (fabric composites / high tech fabrics like used for outdoor clothing). Fab- ric re-cladding systems could potentially be inexpensive, provide a relatively fast installation and has an “adjustable” esthetics.
