Hemp-lime composites are the subject of intensive research due to their pro-ecological value and proven usefulness in construction applications. The subject of the article is the analysis of scientific and research works presenting the properties of this type of materials enabling energy saving during the use of the building.The collected results confirm the multifaceted potential of the composites in the discussed scope and prompt to undertake work on the implementation of solutions in domestic construction.
