The Intelligent District Heating System
In Karlshamn a rewarding collaboration has been going on for many years between several actors who together have created a sustainable and intelligent district heating system. The system, which is controlled using the latest technology in AI, is constantly evolving to help create a future sustainable energy system.
It´s innovation through collaboration!
Fossil-free steel demonstration plant in Vitåfors (Gällivare) – direct reduction of iron ore pellets with hydrogen
HYBRIT’s demonstration plant in Vitåfors will demonstrate the value chain for fossil-free steel on an industrial scale. It includes production of hydrogen and of sponge iron by direct reduction with hydrogen. The plant is planned to be ready in 2026.
Fossil-free steel pilot plant in Luleå – direct reduction of iron ore pellets with hydrogen
HYBRIT is conducting trials on direct reduction of iron ore pellets, using hydrogen produced by fossil-free electricity. HYBRIT is also building a pilot hydrogen storage to test the best way to store hydrogen underground.
Haraholmen – a green industrial park where sustainability is key
Haraholmen is an industrial park where sustainability is key. The site uses renewable energy, welcomes companies with green profiles, and is a hub for resource-efficient transportation with access to roads, railways, and a deep-water port.
Markbygden 1101 – Europe’s largest onshore wind farm
Markbygden 1101 is the largest onshore wind power project in Europe. Once completed, it will consist of up to 1101 wind turbines that together will produce up to 12 TWh per year. This is comparable with around 8% of Sweden’s electricity production.
Site East – a climate neutral construction site
At Skellefteå Site East, close to Northvolt’s factory, conditions are created to create the most sustainable development project ever. By maximizing the cutting edge know-how of both Skellefteå municipality and external partners, Skellefteå Site East is a source of inspiration for the industry. Both in terms of the courage to dare to think and act in new ways around sustainability, and in working together with contractors towards a common vision.
Skellefteå Airport – a green airport
At a time when the global aviation sector is facing increasing demands to get on a sustainable flightpath, one airport in northern Sweden has gotten a head start with an extensive vision that has led them to become one of Europe’s and probably the world’s first fossil-free airport. At the same time the airport is now preparing to become a testcenter for electric powered and vertical-starting aircrafts.
Blue Green City Lab evaluates blue green solutions
In times of more extreme weather caused by climate changes the downside with dense cities with fewer green spaces and more paved surfaces is showing. Extreme heat, flooding and reduced biodiversity, we all see it. However, blue green solutions have a positive impact. Blue Green City Lab is the testbed that evaluates new and proven solutions.
Augustenborg Botanical Roof Garden
With its 9500 sqm the Botanical Roof Garden of Augustenborg is an ever-evolving testbed of urban greening. Here you get to see more than 20 different solutions for greening a rooftop, from the most extensive green roofs to biosolar solutions and even a rooftop kitchen garden.
CoordiNet – Exploring the Possibilities of a Flexible Power Market
The CoordiNet project is exploring the benefits of creating a ‘power flexibility market’. When electricity demand is high, market participants can offer to reduce their electricity use or increase electricity production and sell excess power to the grid operator.
