Energy and environment
We have expert knowledge and experience on the environment, climate and building process.
TheONE - design of wood burning stoves
The aim of the project is to develop a standardized wood stove combustion chamber for each industry partner, ultra-flexible and capable of complete and clean combustion independently of the wood stove exterior design, to significantly save development time and total production costs for manufacturers.
Development of Smart Thermal Grids
Approximately half of buildings energy demand is related to heating and cooling. District heating is an important technology in improving the energy efficiency of heating systems in cities and districts, because it enables waste heat sources to be utilised economically and therefore significantly reduces the environmental impacts of energy production.
Living with zero-emission technology
How does technology change people, and how do people change in response to technology? Sixteen people volunteered to live in a high-tech, zero-emission house to help researchers answer those exact questions.
What about a wind turbine installed in your wall?
Researchers have been looking into the opportunities and possible drawbacks of exploiting small, so-called 'building-augmented' wind turbines (BAWT) in Norway.
