Powerhouse represents a collaboration in the development of climate buildings, and consists of the property company Entra, the entrepreneur Skanska, the environmental organization ZERO, Snøhetta architecture and design office, and the consulting company Asplan Viak.
With the Powerhouse Paris Proof concept, you can help design buildings that comply with the reduction targets in the Paris Agreement, and you can help shape the buildings of the future. The definition states maximum and total CO2 emissions per square metre. Achieving this will take zero-emission construction sites in combination with climate-friendly materials, recycling and re-use. The Futurebuilt definition of energy positive buildings is also part of the basis. This ensures that buildings produce more energy than they consume over their lifecycle.
