Latest developments on Low2No – the low carbon block in Jätkäsaari, Helsinki

A team of international and Finnish designers, including Experientia, announced the current status and latest developments of the Low2No project today, at a sustainable urban development conference organised by Sitra, the Finnish innovation fund.

In particular, the block’s innovative retail strategy and new district heating agreement were showcased. The retail strategy offers a unique mixed use solution, and embodies the soft-side of the innovation process aimed at more sustainable lifestyles. The heating strategy, worked out together with Helsingin Energia will provide coal-free, renewable district heating.

Experientia has been particularly involved in developing participatory processes and coordinating stakeholder input for the retail strategy, while our involvement in the energy strategy focuses on demand management, including developing behavioural change strategies for more sustainable energy use and advanced smart meter design.
