CLASS1

The Municipality of Egedal decided in 2005 to strengthen the energy requirements for a new settlement called Stenloese South. All the dwellings in in this neighbourhood were to be built with an energy demand corresponding to the Danish low-energy standard referred to as "low-energy class 1" – or lower. This meant that the energy consumption was to... Continue reading
