Implementation of integrated wireless sensors technology in renovation of social housing buildings. A Danish case study.

Researchers used greenTEG’s gO Measurement System to measure the U-Value of renovated windows and walls.

In their paper “Implementation of integrated wireless sensors technology in renovation of social housing buildings. A Danish case study." greenTEG's gO-Measurement System was used successfully to assess U-values pre- and post-retrofit. In particular, the underlying project of the case study implemented wireless sensors to monitor the energy efficiency performance of a Danish social housing site before and  after a green retrofit.

The gOMS successfully measured the U-value of the renovated windows and walls in accordance with ISO standards and verified significant improvements in thermal insulation after renovation.

The case study points out that an existing barrier to green building renovation decision making is insufficient information on energy consumption and potential energy savings, and that wireless measurement & verification instruments are key to overcoming this barrier by evaluating building thermal performance and building envelope before and after retrofit.
