Rehabilitation of an old inner-city housing block containing 80 flats in Copenhagen. A total energy design has been used including solar collectors, insulation, low-energy windows, heat recovery on ventilation with 80 per cent efficiency and low temperature district heating. There are several innovative energy features including a large solar wall with transparent insulation. The project has received support from the EU-Thermie Programme and is financed by a variety of housing funds and organisations in Copenhagen. In view of its success, the municipality is promoting further projects of the same kind.
