New, smart business model for energy renovation of detached houses

An open seminar, free of cost, about a new, smart business model for energy renovation of detached houses. Tuesday 6 March, 2018, at Linnaeus University, Växjö, Sweden.

About 80% of Swedish detached houses are more than 30 years old and need renovation. This provides unique an opportunity for cost-efficient implementation of energy efficiency measures that can significantly reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. However, energy renovation of de-tached houses is rather slow due to several hind-rances. The overall goal of this study is to develop, implement and test a one-stop-shop business model for energy renovation of detached houses. Read more about the project at:

The project is financed by The Kamprad Family Foundation for Entrepreneurship, Research & Charity
