An invitation for Nordic municipalities and heritage site managers – join us in Copenhagen in June! European city centers are of great historic and cultural value. How can we improve energy efficiency and use renewable energy in buildings while also protecting our heritage? Are these conflicting requirements?
ICLEI Europe, in the context of the 3ENCULT project, and in cooperation with the city of Copenhagen, organizes a study tour on 26 June 2012
. This exciting 1-day programme is aimed at offering up-to-date information to local leaders and municipal staff dealing with buildings, energy and cultural heritage, especially from Northern Europe and the Baltic Region.
Learn from experts how materials and technology options can be harmonised with cultural heritage. Explore energy efficiency options with us, and the relevant context of local policy and urban planning. Explore innovative approaches in bridging the gap between preserving European landmarks and energy efficiency. A combination of presentations by experts and guided site visits will be organized, exploring:
- the Osram Building – constructed in 1953, this historic landmark was extensively “energy renovated”, reducing energy consumption by more than 60%. Creative solutions were used to preserve the façade and it is connected to the local district heating system.
- the Masteskurene and Mærsehuset - awarded the Mies van der Rohe Prize as a good example of renovation that preserves historical trademarks and meets the users’ needs.
- the Fæstningens Materialegård - a 3ENCULT demonstration project that brings together unique materials, smart solutions and analyzing how to combine energy efficiency and cultural heritage.
