Powerhouse Telemark is Snøhetta's 4th energy positive building
in Telemark, Norway.
The energy sector and building industry account for over 40% of global industry's heat-trapping emissions combined. As the world's population and the severity of the climate crisis continue to grow, precipitating global disruptions such as the COVID-19 pandemic, architects are challenged to work across industries to build more responsibly.

Powerhouse Telemark sets a new standard for the construction of environmentally sustainable buildings by reducing its yearly net energy consumption by 70% compared to similar new-construction offices, and by producing more energy than it will consume over its entire lifespan.

This project has been longlisted in the sustainable building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
