Energy self-sufficient Otaniemi in 2030

The aim of the project is to make the Otaniemi campus area energy self-sufficient by 2030.

An energy self-sufficient campus means a comprehensive regional energy system, where energy production, transfer, distribution, storage and consumption support each other in an intelligent way. Especially reducing consumption is essential in terms of reaching the aim.


The Energy Self-sufficient Otaniemi 2030 “Ecocampus 2030” project analyses the technical-economical framework and guidelines for building a comprehensive regional energy system. Energy self-sufficiency ensures, above all, the cost-effectiveness of Aalto CRE’s energy supply in the long term.
