Using optimisation to deliver maximum energy efficiency
GRANLUND HAS ACHIEVED UNBEATABLE ENERGY EFFICIENCY FOR BUILDINGS, REAL ESTATE AND EVEN ENTIRE NEIGHBOURHOODS. IT HAS DONE THIS THROUGH MORE COST-EFFICIENT OPTIMISATION, BASED ON A WIDE RANGE OF OPTIONS.
Every major construction project is preceded by an energy and environmental analysis of the alternatives. In its energy efficiency modelling, Granlund, a leading expert in energy efficiency, uses a virtual modelling tool to minimise investment and life-cycle costs and energy consumption.
The optimisation tool takes just a few hours to prepare 100–1,000 options for the location in question. It calculates and compares the different variables affecting construction projects. Optimisation can be used to determine issues such as how alternative building
solutions impact on energy consumption and indoor air.
Granlund motivates in addition to calculating. The operation and maintenance of premises have a key impact on energy efficiency. For example, by motivating people and using devices only when necessary, the electrical consumption of offices can be cut in half.
– There is room for improvement in the user friendliness of real estate. For instance, you can reduce your carbon footprint by around 1/3 just by changing people’s behaviour, says Pekka Metsi, CEO of Granlund.
