Thanks to the support from the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME) Display® is being promoted in the Maghreb.
At the beginning of February Ian Turner and Sylvie Lacassagne were invited to Algeria as part of an international conference co-organised by ADEME and their Algerian equivalent APRUE.
As the event focussed on energy efficiency in buildings this was an ideal opportunity to introduce Display® to the Algerians working with buildings. The Display® team was able to meet with city representatives from Algiers centre and Boumerdès and present the tools and poster which are now available in Arabic. There is still some work to go to see the first Display® poster unveiled in public but there is a lot of interest to ensure that Display® is adapted to the cultural needs of the region.
