We must build energy-efficient buildings, but since the building stock is being replaced slowly, it is just as important to make what has already been built more energy-efficient.
Energy efficiency can be about building technical solutions, ventilation, lighting, temperature control, heating systems, energy flexibility and how to use the buildings.
SINTEF finds solutions for both new and existing buildings. We work with all types of buildings: residential, public buildings and commercial buildings. We are involved in all aspects of the process – from the technical solutions to passing on the knowledge to the industry and thereby speed up energy efficiency.
We also look into how regulations and support schemes can facilitate energy efficiency.
