Denmark aims at being 100 % independent of fossil fuels in 2050 - an inspiring challenge to be met through development and appropriate use of energy efficient and sustainable technologies.
The technological challenge is to develop cost effective energy efficient technologies and systems, and to manage the dynamic interaction between end user, the building, appliances, equipment, and an intelligent energy supply system.
EnergyFlexHouse is an asset for companies in the building industry - a practical framework for the innovation process from idea via development of prototypes, through testing and documentation to production and market maturation.
EnergyFlexHouse is a part of the Danish test facility "Green Lab for Energy Efficient Buildings" (GLEEB) and interacts with Danish Technological Institute’s other laboratories in a wide cooperation with entrepreneurs, manufacturers, consultants and contractors, as well as national and international knowledge centers.

EnergyFlexHouse includes two identical, flexible buildings where the building envelope and installations can be adjusted or changed:
- In EnergyFlexHouse Lab technologies are developed and documented based on the “system approach”: both the individual components and the combination of the components must meet market demands for energy efficiency. In EnergyFlexHouse lab we focus on the combinations of building envelope elements, energy installations and control systems.
- EnergyFlexHouse Family, which is inhabited by ordinary families, is a testing facility for energy efficient systems and energy efficient appliances and equipment, control systems and user interfaces - a living lab with focus on the interaction between user and all the energy services relevant for housing.
Watch the animated presentation of the EnergyFlexHouse concept.
You have the possibility of following the energy consumption of the test family by clicking on the link below. The dashboard shows live data from the building EnergyFlexFamily on a range of parametres of energy consumption. The dashboard will be updated in intervals of 12 minutes.
The dashboard shows the current effects of consumption/effects of production and will also show what the energy consumption or energy production has been contributing to the last 24 hours.
Follow the energy consumption in the house of the test family.
