Today’s economic crisis makes managers of almost all companies in all fields wonder how it is possible to cut everyday costs even more. And this kind of situation creates an excellent opportunities for providers of green technologies, for they can notably reduce expenses for electricity and heating.

Prague Daily Monitor informs that according to the recent survey conducted by the consulting company Cushman & Wakefield among managers of various Czech companies 77% of participants responded that they are ready to invest extra sums of money in using environment friendly technologies for their offices, while in 2005 there were only 11% of those who stick to green know hows.

Recently construction of first energy-efficient created with use of environment friendly technologies has begun. But at the moment in the Czech Republic there is no completely “green” office building built yet. And even in the most economically developed and environmentally conscious European countries such edifices are rare.

For instance, WestendDuo office building located in Frankfurt am Mein uses a geothermal heating system and façade specially designed to prevent heat losses. In Vienna another piece of modern green technologies is in process of being constructed now. So called Energy Base building’s façade will be equipped with solar heating and cooling appliances, which will help to make electricity bills not so huge and simultaneously care for the next generations.
