Andorra | Energy + Environment

Kent Larson / City Science


In collaboration with FEDA and General Electric we are determining how the patterns of the users (tourists, citizens, workers) can affect the energy consumption of the country. Based on those energy patterns we are currently developing simulation tools that will allow the stakeholders to take better decisions in the energetic field.

Current Projects

  • School, energy awareness
  • Energy performance
  • Energy prediction tool


Using TerMITes in the Santa Coloma School in Andorra we want to sensibilize students about the relation of the energy performance of the building and the patterns of use. Students will learn how to use the sensors, collect data and will discover strategies to reduce the energy consumption of the building.
