Nearly Zero Energy Building Solutions

The Nordic Built 'Active Roofs and Facades' project reveals how building renovations can be developed with sustainable energy in mind.
Nordic Built

Nearly Zero Energy Building Solutions

The background of building renovation in both Nordic and European projects, where actual energy use is quite often 30-40% higher in practice compared to what was expected from calculations, and where innovative solutions are seldom used, is very much connected to the way the building industry is organised. Here,...

Department of Nursing & Indigenous Studies

The Circumpolar North is one of the most rapidly-changing places on earth, warming at over twice the global average, and in some regions at excess of 3ºC. This has led to disruptions for the indigenous people living in the Circumpolar North, including Inuit in North Canada.

BRConard Consulting Inc

Climate change is one of the world’s toughest challenges. Despite evidence from both sides to debate the magnitude of the problem, the evidence overwhelmingly supports that climate change is real and accelerating. In order to tackle the problem, experts believe that change is needed – within society.


To increase the share of biomass for renewable energy supply in Europe conversion pathways which are low cost and energy efficient, as well as flexible in feedstock are demanded. The BioBoost project aims to make a substantial improvement towards increasing the efficiency of the use if biomass and organic...
