In addition to delivering reductions in energy consumption, the renovation of the Wilmcote House aimed to extend the lifetime of the buildings and transform their visual appearance to create attractive living conditions for the residents.
Minister of the Environment, Ida Auken, inaugurated the first return system in Denmark to recycle insulation residue from both refurbishments and demolitions. Stone wool residue is now collected at public waste recycling sites and returned to the factory. The ROCKWOOL factory in Doense is seen as a model example of how industry can help achieve the government’s Resource Efficiency Strategy.
Buildings account for up to 40% of society’s energy demand and thereby play a key role in the green transition. This White Paper can be used as a tool for inspiration to spot the potential or implement building automation and energy-efficient measures in new and existing buildings globally.
