A new report from the ZEB centre states that it is not only solid technical solutions that has been crucial for the Powerhouse Kjørbo success, the world’s first renovated plus-energy building
Buildings account for around 40 percent of energy consumption and 40 percent of CO2 emissions on a global basis. The first renovated energy-positive building in Norway is already in place. It is energy efficient and produces more energy than it consumes during its lifespan.
We want more people to be aware of the effort at Brattørkaia and the establishment of Powerhouse. Therefore, we have started a campaign. The goal of the campaign is to fill vacant spaces at Powerhouse by communicating the building's exceptional and energy saving properties.
In Drøbak outside Oslo, Powerhouse Drøbak Montessori School is under development - a junior high school for about 60 children. The school’s vision is "learning through experience" which is emphasised through student activities and the school's interdisciplinary approach. The new building will consist of about 900 square meters heated area, and will be on one level with a basement below pars of the building. The goal is to take the school into use in August 2017.
