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.
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.
Sweden’s largest battery storage – a front-edge project to meet increasing electricity demand
Many cities around the world are growing rapidly, which increases the need for electricity. In the city of Uppsala, Sweden, a possible solution is being developed, piloting one of Sweden’s largest battery storages to meet the increased demand, enable continued expansion and mitigate increased capacity needs.
MAX IV Combines High-Tech Laboratory with High-Tech Sustainability
MAX IV is a world-leading accelerator physics laboratory for research into synchrotron radiation. It is also unique in its ambitious sustainability aims. Its smart solutions in energy efficiency, biological diversity and waste management make it the first building to receive the BREEAM-SE environmental classification.
Island of Gotland is Home to Sustainable Energy System Pilot Project
The island of Gotland has been chosen as a pilot region for Sweden’s transition to a future sustainable energy system. The main requirements for this transition are a safe, reliable energy supply that is both ecologically sustainable and economically competitive.
Stockholm Innovates District Heating with New Solutions and Renewable Sources
In central Stockholm, you find one of Europe’s largest district heating and cooling systems. Close to 90% of the city’s buildings are connected to the district heating network, which uses several innovative energy sources, such as excess heat and wastewater.
Bioenergy Plant Is Among World’s First to Use Carbon Capture and Storage
In the journey towards a carbon-negative energy production, Sweden’s first bioenergy carbon capture and storage pilot plant was commissioned in 2019. This project is a part of Stockholm’s target towards a positive carbon footprint by 2040.
