Beskrivelse

Transition to a low-carbon future calls for lowering energy demand and an increased use of intermittent energy sources, such as wind and solar power. Buildings account for roughly 40% of all energy use (for heating-cooling) and have, therefore, a prominent role in this transition. This will require rethinking the building both as a residential project and as part of the energy infrastructure.

InterHUB focuses on three important dimensions for the integration of buildings into the energy system: building systems design, household practices, and changing models for energy provision, and on how these dimensions are interrelated. The project addresses the technical, communicative, organisational and social challenges associated with buildings’ changing role in the energy system. Thus, the purpose of InterHUB is to deepen our understanding of the challenges involved in realising an integration of buildings and households in a future integrated and flexible energy system.
