Self-sufficiency with waste heat
Oulu is involved in an international multi-diciplinary cooperation network and building new innovative energy solutions. Kaukovainio district in Oulu will be a pilot destination for solutions. The pilot aims to demonstrate that a building using innovative energy solutions can be nearly energy self-sufficient when the waste heat it produces can be utilized as efficiently as possible. It also aims to create a new urban planning model and new business fuelled by innovative energy solutions.
