Projected changes in annual (left), summer (middle) and winter (right) near-surface air temperature (°C) in the period 2071-2100 compared to the baseline period 1971-2000 for the forcing scenarios RCP 4.5 (top) and RCP 8.5 (bottom). Model simulations are based on the multi-model ensemble average of RCM simulations from the EURO-CORDEX initiative.

Planning to renovate your house or apartment?
Look for ways to reduce the energy consumption for heating and cooling, for example by sealing windows and doors, insulation or changing the windows. Today it is possible to build ‘carbon neutral’ houses.
