The aim of Lahti project is to
promote the uptake of efficient, low-carbon solutions in the context of
renovations of apartment buildings and private houses.
The action will focus on
implementing simple and cost-effective energy-efficiency solutions, such as
smart thermostats and other smart appliances as well as energy storages and
other innovative solutions identified during the project. Energy advising is
included. Information of these energy retrofits will be collected at actual
renovation sites. The results will be leveraged to catalyze new energy retrofit
projects. The purpose of this action is to show-case the most effective and
scalable measures to decrease the energy consumption and CO2 of residential
buildings and provide a test-bed for smart energy services, for the residents.
The case study houses belong to Lahden Talot Ltd, a municipal housing company.
In addition to the energy
renovations and retrofits, assessment of cost-efficiency and emission reduction
will be conducted by an experts. Results will be disseminated locally, in
Finland and internationally.
Lahti Canemure project execution
will happen during the 1st phase of Life–IP (1st Nov 2018 – 30th Oct 2021) , but follow-up of the energy used in the case buildings will continue further.
