Objectives and Deliverables
As an outcome of the project, there will be a concept design for a Finnish townhouse. Findings of the research work will be disseminated annually through publications and seminars.
AEF Energy Efficient Townhouse aims at developing a concept of an energy-carbon-cost efficient townhouse suitable to the Finnish context. The townhouse design will provide cost-optimized and energy efficient concepts for energy supply and storage, HVAC, as well as building envelope and control strategies. Design solutions will be developed for a lifespan housing, including flexibility, safety, accessibility and usability.
