Buildings play a decisive role when seeking balance between producing and consuming sustainable energy. We therefore focus on reducing the energy consumption in buildings and making the buildings flexible and able to cope with fluctuating energy production from the sun and wind. This requires technology able to even out production and consumption. We also work on ensuring that new buildings are sustainable in the long term, and built with the lowest CO2 emissions possible.

 

Selection of sites and cases

Domen is a transparent, dome-shaped greenhouse in the harbor area of Aarhus. In its inside, you will find a two-story wooden house surrounded by fragrant trees and plants. It is a landmark for sustainability and community.

Buildings are responsible for 40% of the overall Danish energy consumption. Furthermore, one third of the overall waste generated in the country stems from the building sector. That is why buildings are a key to a more sustainable use of resources.
