Powerhouse is a project to create the first office building in the world that has a positive energy use throughout its lifespan. This means that the building is going to produce more energy than it uses, thus making it a so called “plusshus”.
The building will use well-known methods to make it as energy efficient as possible, keeping energy use to a minimum. In addition, to make the energy use of the building become positive, solar panels will be installed on the roof, at times making the building add electricity to the grid.
In this way building becomes part of the solution. See the video below (in English) for more details about the project:

Asplan Viak is working with the project as the technical consultant, and will also be the first tenant in the building. The tenancy will be a great complement to their ambition to take environmental sustainability and energy efficiency into account in all their projects, whether they are global or local.
