Background and activities
Fields of competence
Inger Andresen is focusing on developing concepts and solutions for zero emission buildings and plus energy houses. Her main research interest is to develop effective energy solutions that are integral parts of the building design and that supports the realisation of sustainable buildings and good architecture. Her focus is not only on energy efficiency and low carbon footprint, but also on solutions that perform well with respect to indoor and outdoor environment, economics and social aspects.
Andresen has a PhD in Integrated energy design from NTNU (2000) og a masters degree in "Building energy systems" from University of Colorado (1991).
