Best available technology for Lesja nursing home
When faced with the need to make their largest ever investment, Lesja municipality chose the best technology available in order to achieve an energy efficient nursing home.
The nursing home previously used a large amount of energy, the windows were draughty, the indoor environment was poor quality, and the light fittings were old and not controlled. In order to reduce the home’s energy consumption significantly, the municipality carried out an extensive renovation. A new energy plant was installed using ground-source heating to replace the building’s electric heating, and insulation was installed and other energy-saving measures were implemented both inside and outside. The project received funds from Enova as the best available technology was used for the renovation. The energy efficiency measures are positive both for the environment and the municipality’s finances.
