The Municipality of Stenloese has decided to strengthen the energy requirements for a new settlement to be erected in the municipality. In this new settlement 650 dwellings will be constructed in the years 2007-2008 to a low-energy standard referred to as "low-energy class 1" in the Danish Building Regulations. This requirement means that the energy consumption will be 50 % below the new energy regulations to be introduced with the implementation of the EPBD (Energy Performance of Building Directive) in Denmark in 2006 (which are app. 25% lower than the present regulations).
The CLASS 1 project will use this strengthening of the energy requirements to boost and drive the technological development of 6 selected technologies/building components covering the 3 areas: Eco-buildings, Renewable Energy Supply and intelligent energy management system and to prove the economical and environmental benefits of ultra-low energy buildings integrated with biomass- and solar heating based renewable energy supply.
