Avinor has decided that Værnes should be Norway’s most environmentally friendly airport.

It has now been compulsory for four years to make energy assessments of technical installations and use energy labelling for work buildings.

Entro, market leader in energy consultancy in Norway, is currently posting strong growth in Sweden. The Swedish building portfolio expanded by more than 2.7 million square metres in 2013, which equates to growth of 150 per cent against the previous year. “The secret lies in our combination of unique monitoring technology with practical advice on energy and the climate. We are the only company in Sweden who can offer this combination,” comments Marie Tibblin, Managing Director of Entro AB in Sweden.
Together with Entro, the Church of Norway Council in Oslo is aiming to improve energy efficiency in 66 church buildings. The Council intends to earmark the money that is saved for maintenance work.
