When Hydro's pilot plant in Karmøy begins operation in 2017, it will have the most climate and energy efficient aluminium production technology in the world. Hydro is a world leader in research and development in the aluminium industry. We want to use the technology pilot at Karmøy to roll out the world’s most energy and climate efficient technology for producing aluminium.
Powerhouse is a collaboration of companies dedicated to building energy positive buildings. The collaboration consists of Hydro, Skanska, Snøhetta, the environmental NGO ZERO, Entra Eiendom, the aluminium profile company Sapa og the consulting firm Asplan Viak. We want to demonstrate that it is possible to build energy positive buildings, not just in the southern regions of the world, but also in cold Norway.
