Demo Neighbourhood Austria

The Austrian demo case is located in the Geneis District of Salzburg, an alpine town in Austria representing a continental climate. The construction of a plus energy residential quarter will upgrade the entire neighbourhood through an integrated construction project focusing on energy, accessibility, mobility, climate change adaptation and social-planning concepts.
