They will present the German consortium “German Green Technology Hub”, which consists of various German specialists in renewable energy, energy efficiency, and alternative building materials,” the government press release said. “This is a very interesting subject for construction companies and project developers who will be introduced to this new system and technology for residential and commercial projects.”
