The Kalasatama area will be important for the Helsinki mySMARTLife activities – newly constructed smart high-performance buildings are planned to be realised here. On 12th June 2017, the “Experience Kalasatama” event took place – and the local mySMARTLife partners Helen, Salusfin and the City of Helsinki wer presented with a joint stand. The event was organised by the Smart Kalasatama project and was part of the city-wide Helsinki Day festival.
The City of Helsinki presented a Helsinki 3D city model, that impressively visualised the potential of solar energy and the heat loss of buildings. Also, inventor and author Janne Käpylehto introduced the different possibilities on how to install a solar power plant on an apartment building.
The Korkeasaari Zoo was also in the focus: The energy utility company Helen informed about a workshop series planned for autumn 2017. The aim of the workshops is to find out the visitors’ opinion about the zoo’s plans to become carbon neutral and how they would like to contribute to improve energy efficiency in the zoo.
Start-up company Salusfin was presenting different solutions for smart homes, for example intelligent thermostats.
There were lot of good discussions and altogether around 150 people visited the event at Kalasatama school.
