1 May marked the launch of the SURE! Nordic Built for Sustainable Retrofitting project that will run until March 2017. It is a new Nordic project with partners from Denmark, Sweden and Finland, and aims at developing a sustainable retrofitting concept for multi-storey buildings. 

 

 

Aims at saving energy


The project aims at optimising energy usage and strengthening sustainable lifestyles for residents in areas that need retrofitting at a low cost. This is done through a combination of technology for diagnosing and optimising heating and indoor comfort in existing buildings, an interactive visualization system that enables an understanding of different kinds of consumption, and an open ICT infrastructure.

 

– Experience shows that structural renovations rarely deliver the expected energy savings and that further initiatives are needed. By using a technology for diagnosing and optimising heating and indoor comfort in existing buildings, supplemented by user interfaces designed to achieve sustainable and energy-efficient habits among tenants, this project offers a solution which helps solve this problem, explains project manager Henrik Blyt in a press release.
