Modern villages - SINNI project
The SINNI project aims at investigating whether the existing and future building stock in sparsely populated areas of Lapland can be utilized in the production of decentralized energy. The SINNI will define the criteria for a decentralized solar energy production units for village areas, and identify existing and future energy production potential, the development of land use and possible constraints. The project is led by Prof. Tarja Outila at Oulu School of Architecture, with the Energy and Environmental Engineering as well as the Geoinformatics Research Groups as project partners. The Rovaniemi Village Association, Napapiirin Energia ja Vesi, Rovakaira and the University of Oulu are supporting and co-financing the project. SINNI started on October 2020 and will last two years.
