The International Seminar Energy Saving in Buildings jointly organized by the European Communities and the Netherlands Ministry of Economic Affairs highlighted the results of energy saving projects carried out within the framework of the Communities Second Energy R & D Programme and the results of the Demonstration Programme (1979 - 1983). The seminar was also intended to convey these results to representatives of national authorities, public, industrial and financial organizations, architects, decision makers and town planners. In a plenary session on the first day, recognized energy experts illustrated the need for energy conservation research and commented on the potentials of various technologies in this field. During the next two days results of research work and of demonstration projects carried out by contractors were presented in three sessions and three poster sessions on heat pumps, building envelope and improved conventional heating systems. During each session an overview of the work was given by a rapporteur and some contractors. At the end of the conference overall conclusions and recommendations were developed by Dr. M. Davis, Director at the Commission of the European Communities.
