Annual power consumption of European Union reaches 1.8 billion

Energy consumption in buildings is often a great lift, but little by little attention. Germany, 23 to the latest survey data show that the annual EU-27 consumption actually lift up to 18 billion kWh, while the rational use of energy-saving measures make the elevator power consumption in half.
