The project includes the construction of new buildings – a secondary school for 810 students, a new culture hall, a dance hall, and rehearsal space – and the renovation of an existing listed building, in total about 14.000 m2 floor area. The area has high environmental ambitions and will be built as Oslo’s first plus energy school, with a surplus of energy generated, covering all energy needs including appliances/plug-loads. The total area of the PV-installation is 1556m2 and a yearly estimated production of 192 MWh. The new school facility will be integrated as part of the surrounding local area, which complements the area with new functions and activities and strengthens the area’s green structure. The set of actions that will be undertaken by the ARV project will encompass resource efficient renovation processes and district energy analysis and operation, highlighting social, educational, and digital aspects to enhance citizens involvement and generating Citizen Energy Communities.
