Short description of the pilot project
The municipality of Falun has showen its competence in building issues. This project is top of the line, with low energy consumtion (40kwh/m2), built in wood,  heated with renewable energy (pellets) and electricity from own windmill park.
MountEE will follow the pilot in the evaluation phase, document the process and results and use it in trainings and education purposes.

Process and planning quality
The municipality has a consulting team located at the municipality. Energy level and choice of building material follow the energy strategy with very good margins. LCC-calculations are done on all installations and energybalanses are established in the planning phase, after procurement and during building process. The best standard for sustainable building material (Sunda Hus) is chosen. Performance is evaluated two and five years after completed construction.

Implementation of service package
The municipality follows the modules in the service package. However it has its own “spinning wheel for the building process” and this is something the MountEE-project will investigate in.
