Role in the Project
Ekolab has an important role as retrofitting expert with experience from successful full-scale retrofitting projects applying the newest in retrofitting technology. Ekolab is a consulting engineer and experience from this will be used in the project.
Ekolab will examine various scenarios of integration of multi-functional hybrid retrofitting solutions, so that they can be in position to serve multiple needs of buildings, not only in terms of electricity but also in terms of heating/cooling. Moreover, Ekolab will identify, consolidate and present in a meaningful way, the outcomes and experiences of RINNO that can potentially strengthen the development and standardization of Building Renovation Passports.
