Energy Audit of 50 Buildings Led to Great Savings

Reference: Københavns Ejendomme

How do you save energy in schools and day care facilities? With screening of buildings and prioritized initiatives.

Viegand Maagøe has assisted Københavns Ejendomme in minimizing the energy consumption in 50 municipal buildings.

How we solved the project

Københavns Ejendomme wanted a review of 50 municipal schools and day-care institutions. The project focused particularly on heating- and ventilation systems in order to achieve energy savings.  Viegand Maagøe was responsible for the review of the buildings.

To ensure the best possible results, we used several sources to get information about the buildings:

  • Evaluation of energy labelling reports
  • Auditing of the buildings and installations
  • Entering into a dialogue with the operating staff (janitors etc.) and users

The dialogue provided e.g. valuable information about the management of ventilation systems and identification of unnecessary energy consumption outside the normal use time of the buildings.

For each building, we calculated the potential energy savings for possible initiatives, estimated investment costs, and provided recommendations.

Contract period: 2015


Københavns Ejendomme was provided with well-researched reports which included an overview of potential energy saving activities and recommendations of how to prioritize the most cost-effective initiatives.

The project was a part of the EU-supported program CIUDAD. Together with The City of Copenhagen, other municipalities, and Region Zealand, the project has created annual energy savings of approximately 27,000 MWh, equal to 7,500 tons of CO2.

Global Goals

The project contributes to several of the 17 UN Global Goals:
