Concept & Competition Henning Larsen Architects | Low-energy office building

Henning Larsen Architects | Low-energy office buildingThe new office building of Energinet.dk in Ballerup is a low-energy building. The lowest energy class possible has been achieved exclusively by means of optimising the design and geometry. The building has an annual energy consumption of only 47,7 kWh/m2. Incorporating solar panels, ground water cooling and heat pumps in the project would further reduce the annual energy consumption to only 35 kWh/m2.
