Nordic Climate Solutions 2009


When more than 1000 stakeholders within energy, transport and building meet the next two days, VELUX Group will be represented in two main conference discussions.

A VELUX Group stand will showcase Active House and during the conference, the EU Commissioner for Energy will get a guided tour of Green Lighthouse.

On 8-9 September 2009, the largest green-tech conference and exhibition in Northern Europe takes place in Copenhagen's Bella Center. More than 1000 producers, suppliers, customers and business partners as well as politicians and scientists meet, three months before COP 15 opening.

Sustainable cities
One of the main sessions at the conference is titled "A Tale of Two Green Cities". The Mayor of the Swedish city of Malmoe and the Mayor of Technical and Environmental Administration of Copenhagen will give answers to the question: How are renewable energy best integrated in urban design and what are the perspectives for sustainable cities?

At the same session, Michael K. Rasmussen, Director of Branding and Communication, addresses both construction of new houses and renovation of old houses. In his presentation, he will present the Model Home 2020 demonstration houses 'Home for Life' and 'Green Lighthouse' as well as three Greater Copenhagen renovation projects, where VELUX Group has partnered up with the Municipality of Copenhagen (Solar Prism in Albertslund, Valhalsgade Culture Centre in Copenhagen, and Gullandsgården at Amager, Copenhagen). These projects demonstrate in practice how the "Active House" concept meet the future demands for sustainable buildings that is cutting energy consumption while creating a better indoor climate.

Solar energy and intelligent homes
In the future, homes will provide energy instead of consuming energy. In order to achieve this goal, solar energy will play an important role. Frank Hansen, Senior Product Manager at the VELUX Solar Energy Department is on an expert panel discussing the potentials and barriers for solar energy in the intelligent home.

At the Nordic Climate Solutions tradeshow, visitors will get a first-hand view of the Active House concept at the VELUX stand where they are also invited to attend sessions on "Renewable Energy" and "Solar Energy". During the conference, delegations of politicians and scientists will get guided tours at the VELUX stand.
