After one year of monitoring, the first completed pilot in Tampere has reached remarkable savings. The Limited liability housing company Tampereen Pohjolankatu 18-20 finished their renovation in July 2014. One year after the renovation they have already saved 17 000 euros in the heating costs. Compared to the year built, the bought heating energy has dropped 61 % and electricity use 47 %. No problems with the technical systems have occurred and the residents have been happy with the quality of living after refurbishments. Nearly 200 visitors have already come to see the pilot housing company and discuss their systems and process. Dissemination of the good experience will continue in a wider perspective when events will be held all over Tampere in September for housing companies and interest groups, related to building management and good living in limited liability housing companies.
