We would like to wish all our readers a very warm welcome to the first 2018 issue of DLA Piper’s Real Estate Gazette.

In this special issue devoted entirely to energy efficiency, we look at different countries’ approaches to improving the energy efficiency of buildings, renewable energy projects and sustainability in commercial real estate.

We are also innovating here at the Real Estate Gazette, and in this issue we are delighted to publish our first interview.
