More about this expert:

My passion is to find the most profitable combinations for saving energy in buildings. I have worked with energy efficiency of buildings in 9 years. I started out by building the first Passivhaus Institut-certified Passive House in Finland. It is still today the most energy efficient one family house in Finland. In 2009 I became an employee and a minority shareholder of a small Finnish start-up company Savumax Oy. The company had developed a breakthrough zero energy technology for heating up small houses in the northern climate. I worked planning and selling the systems to hundreds of houses in Finland, Sweden, Russia and Japan. In April 2014 I started my own start-up nollaE Oy and became a full time planner without any sales activity. In nollaE I get to use all available technologies available to find the financially best combination of solutions instead of just working with the products of one supplier. The problems I solve are related to how much energy a building consumes and what are the changes that together bring the biggest ROI to the owner. The financially best solutions are always the best also environmentally.
