Sustainable built environment and energy

Low carbon construction

We focus on promoting life-cycle thinking and sustainable development principles in the construction sector. Our approach emphasises the importance of user perspective, material choices, optimisation of environmental impact and energy efficiency.

Our students and experts work with industry professionals on solutions that integrate sustainability as a natural part of the business, without compromising on quality or functionality.

We make appropriate use of data and the latest technology, such as 3D models, simulations and intelligent automation.

Renewable energies and energy efficiency

Smart energy solutions and services based on renewable resources can help manage decentralised energy production and consumption and coordinate different energy systems. Increased cooperation between electrical and building technologies and smart automation also offers new opportunities. Smart grid solutions can be used to manage distributed energy production and consumption. Development will also take into account forest industry by-products and better use of wood raw material and new uses. The aim is to improve the availability of raw materials, the integrity of the supply chain and the sustainability of the logistic chain.

The focus is on renewable energy and fuel sources such as forest bioenergy, biogas, geoenergy, solar energy, wind power and hydrogen technology. Sustainability and responsibility are widely taken into account in operations and solutions.
