Powerhouse Brattørkaia, one of our demonstration areas which is also the biggest new energy-block in Norway, has officially been launched on the 30th of August, 2019.
On the 30th of August, +CityxChange, celebrated the official opening of Powerhouse Brattørkaia (Trondhein) which is the biggest new positive energy block in Norway. It will generate more energy in its operational phase than it consumes through the production of building materials, construction, operation and disposal of the building. For Powerhouse Brattørkaia, form follows environment, while optimal use of solar energy determines the building’s exciting and iconic architecture. Solar energy, other sources of renewable energy, and an extremely low energy consumption ensure that this becomes an energy-positive building.
The official opening attracted participants from private, public, university and research organisations. Several partners in this huge project, such as +CityxChange, ZEN, IOTA, Trønder Energi, etc., participated with stands open for all public.
Among the other groups engaged in festival were young people working in climate -related issues – Klimabrølet Trondheim – Climate Roar. Entra CEO Sonja Horn and Secretary of the Department of Commerce Torbjørn Røe officially connected the powerhouse, with smoke and el-guitar solo effects to celebrate the grand opening.
Stalls with activities for different age groups were made available. Among others, an electric car, electric boat and an electric bus that can be charged with solar cells from Powerhouse, were showcased.
