The action will focus on implementing simple and cost-effective energy-efficiency solutions, such as smart thermostats and other smart appliances as well as energy storages and other innovative solutions identified during the project.

Energy advising is included. Information of these energy retrofits will be collected at actual renovation sites. The results will be leveraged to catalyze new energy retrofit projects. The purpose of this action is to show-case the most effective and scalable measures to decrease the energy consumption and CO2 of residential buildings and provide a test-bed for smart energy services, for the residents. The case study houses belong to Lahden Talot Ltd, a municipal housing company.
