With its 31 buildings, some 1,500 flats housing 4,000 residents, the Torrelago district in Laguna de Duero, near Valladolid in northwestern Spain, is emerging as a large-scale example of energy efficiency in Europe. The old red brick facades have been given a green makeover, aimed at reducing energy consumption and improving comfort. Part of the EU project “CITyFied”:http://www.
