An EU-GUGLE event was arranged the 5th of March for the pilot housing companies, concerning current aspects of the whole project and the renovations. Presentations from experts covered issues from life cycle and repair needs of concrete building envelopes and possibilities and procedures of group renovation in the EU-GUGLE pilot housing, to the importance and system of controlling the overall heating system and use of electricity.

The third completed pilot housing company As Oy Torinnaapuri showcased their renovation to other pilots and interest groups the 18th of March. Renovation has been successful; the local district heating company had even been in contact with the housing company due to the sudden drop of heat demand.
