Energy efficiency and renewable energy

Energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions enable us to significantly impact our carbon footprint and the economy. Let’s solve the green transition together!

The energy transition is here

For the real estate and construction sector, the energy transition means, above all, new energy technologies and the closer integration of properties into energy networks.

For property owners, the energy transition opens up a new playing field worth utilising. The hot topics of the day include low-emission energy solutions, changes in the energy market and fluctuating energy prices.

Clean energy production and energy efficiency play a crucial role in combating climate change.

It is of the utmost importance to get rid of fossil fuels quickly and build the future energy system on renewable energy sources.

We have a carbon handprint of a giant

More than half of the carbon footprint generated during a property’s lifecycle is caused by energy use.

We have hundreds of experts to help reduce the carbon footprint of your property, whether it is in the design stage or already in the maintenance stage.

Our energy experts help define the most reasonable and economically viable measures for each property.

Carbon neutrality requires new energy solutions

All aims to be carbon-neutral requires significant energy investments in the real estate and construction sector.

Investing in new energy solutions and making decentralised energy solutions is reasonable and forward-looking energy design.

Renewable energy is the energy of the future

Renewable energy can make a significant contribution to the need for purchased energy in buildings and the reduction of the carbon footprint. The most profitable option is if renewable energy can be produced, stored and utilised locally.

Harnessing buildings to produce at least part of the energy they need themselves has allowed significant reductions in the need for fossil fuel-based energy production. In particular, the heat pump technology and the solar energy have produced good results.

The expertise of our designers covers the most up-to-date technology in all forms of renewable energy.

Pioneers in advanced energy solutions

Our strength is the assessment of different energy solutions and their effectiveness in both individual properties and entire property portfolios. Our experts boast the most comprehensive expertise in energy calculations, new energy solutions and extensive hybrid energy systems.

When it comes to energy design, we always think about your needs first. Together, we will come up with the most effective solutions to support your business and achieve your sustainability goals. We strive for a model of continuous improvement so that we can take energy issues into account increasingly diversely and comprehensively.

Honoured energy expertise

Together with K Group, we developed an energy recycling system for K grocery stores that reduces heat consumption by up to 95% and makes the building almost carbon neutral in terms of energy. In 2020 the system won an award in the annual contest of the European Heat Pump Association for the most efficient, smart and sustainable heat pump solutions of the year.

In addition, the process heat recovery solution we designed for Mölnlycke Health Care’s plant in Mikkeli, Finland received the Energy Genius of the Year 2023 award. The energy savings are equivalent to the annual consumption of around 240 family homes and the district heating requirement is around 60% lower than before.

Energy efficiency projects are highly lucrative

Energy efficiency projects can lead to significant reductions in emissions and costs. Properly designed and implemented energy efficiency projects are highly profitable investments, offering positive returns as early as their first year. The return from a well-planned energy efficiency project is almost always in the double digits.

Energy efficiency projects should be foreseen and planned smartly as part of other renovation and construction projects. When the right investments are made in the right place and at the right time, the maintenance backlog can be kept under control.

The return from a well-planned energy efficiency project is almost always in the double digits.

AI Energy Survey – introducing artificial intelligence to energy work!

AI Energy Survey calculates and simulates the way to achieve the highest energy savings and the extent to which CO2 emissions can be reduced based on the data in the energy certificate.

With AI Energy Survey, you can quickly determine the energy efficiency potential of an individual property or an entire property portfolio.

A variety of implementation models for energy efficiency projects

We implement energy efficiency projects using diverse implementation models, from the traditional consultant-driven model to turnkey service delivery. In Granlund’s project management model, we take greater responsibility for the construction project and enable a simple way to increase the energy efficiency of your property to a new level.

Market survey: real estate investors lead the way in the environmental sustainability of construction projects


According to a market survey on environmental sustainability carried out by Granlund, clear environmental targets are rarely set for construction projects. There is also room for improvement in the way their implementation is monitored.

Energy efficiency for new buildings

In new construction, energy-related matters can be promoted in a cost-neutral way. More energy efficient solutions do not necessarily increase construction costs when projects are planned smartly and the focus is on the right system choices from the outset.

There are also vast differences in the energy efficiency potential of buildings. For example, data centres require huge amounts of energy but they have great potential for the secondary use of energy. At best, properties can function as carbon sinks if investments are made in their energy solutions in an unprejudiced and smart way. We help identify and implement demanding energy solutions for varying sites.

Experts in district energy solutions bring the energy and real estate sectors together

Our consulting services help the real estate and energy sectors to jointly find the most cost-efficient ways to reduce the carbon footprint. We know the area-specific needs and the best solutions.

Obvious cost savings and smaller carbon footprint with energy management

Energy management services help reduce the carbon footprint and the energy bill. Improving energy efficiency will be clearly reflected in the carbon emissions and value of your properties.

Our energy management services help monitor energy consumption and analyse the data obtained from it. We help develop energy efficiency in a coordinated, systematic and transparent way. Our experts help improve the economy, value, environmental responsibility and condition of your properties.
