How can anthropology help us understand deep energy renovation?
In the fourth TripleA-reno project newsletter, we explore why an interdisciplinary approach is needed to understand energy consumption in buildings and to plan and carry out renovations. This includes engineering, building physics, architecture or computer modeling, as well as social sciences and humanities. We are also inviting you to tune in to the TripleA-reno Home Show!
