EnergyFlexHouse includes two identical, flexible buildings where the building envelope and installations can be adjusted or changed:
In EnergyFlexHouse Lab technologies are developed and documented based on the “system approach”: both the individual components and the combination of the components must meet market demands for energy efficiency. In EnergyFlexHouse lab we focus on the combinations of building envelope elements, energy installations and control systems.
EnergyFlexHouse Family, which is inhabited by ordinary families, is a testing facility for energy efficient systems and energy efficient appliances and equipment, control systems and user interfaces - a living lab with focus on the interaction between user and all the energy services relevant for housing.
EnergyFlexHouse is a part of the Danish test facility "Green Lab for Energy Efficient Buildings" (GLEEB) and interacts with Danish Technological Institute’s other laboratories in a wide cooperation with entrepreneurs, manufacturers, consultants and contractors, as well as national and international knowledge centers.
