Händelöverket is one of Sweden’s biggest and most modern power plants and it supplies Norrköping and Söderköping with heat and power and it also supplies process steam to Agroetanol for the production of ethanol. Händelöverket is an efficient system that utilizes 90% of the fuel’s energy. The fuel consists of 95% waste and biomass.

  • Energy-Efficient Hospitals

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    The company Schneider suggested a project to Region Skåne that involved installation of new control systems for ventilation, temperature, fans, and sensors for the control of lighting at the hospital in Kristianstad. Savings would be shared between the hospital and Schneider. In addition to installing equipment, the project involved meetings with numerous members of the 2100 employees of the hospital in order to engage them in energy saving changes of behaviour and work routines.
