The first three sub-projects are managed by the healthcare management organization of Region Skåne.

  • Creating the Zero Energy Buildings of the Future

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    The new regional headquarters of Region Skåne is one of the most energy efficient buildings in Sweden. This represents one further step in the direction of energy efficiency – planning and constructing the energy efficient buildings of the future. Now the process to build a new center for forensic medicine in the city of Trelleborg has been started.

  • Dåva CHP

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Dåva CHP is one of the world's most energy efficient and environmentally friendly plants with waste as its main fuel. Here we produce district heating and electricity from sorted waste and residues from the forest industry.

  • E.ON. CFB Waste Incineration Plant

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    Händelöverket is today owned by E.ON Värme AB. The first boiler was commissioned in 1982 and the site has since been extended and refurbished many times in order to always exhibit the latest environmental performance, the latest boiler was commissioned in 2011. 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.

  • Eriksberg – From shipyard to sustainable housing

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Derelict industrial premises from the era of shipyards have been transformed into an exciting mix of modern housing and renovated dockside buildings.

    The reconstruction of Eriksberg was made with the environment in focus. One interesting feature is the underground waste collection system. Eriksberg is one of the first areas in the world using several fractions. It was started already in 1993 and is still expanding. When Eriksberg is complete the automated waste collections system will handle waste (food-, paper- and residual waste) for over 5000 apartments.

  • Fossil Free Heating in Hospitals

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Region Skåne is the organization that manages the health care in the southernmost part of Sweden with over one million inhabitants. The board has set the goal that all its own and rented buildings and transports are to be fossil-free by 2020. This demanding goal involves a strategy to work together with the management teams of the energy companies that deliver heat to the municipalities in the region to eliminate fossil fuels.

  • Heat From the Sea

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Karlskronahem is the municipal housing company of the coastal city of Karlskrona in Southern Sweden. Some of the heating solutions that have been developed in order to replace oil have been based on extracting heat from the sea through the use of a grid of hoses laid down on the bottom of the sea. Further installations are planned using hose- and pipe-systems that are not prone to damage by anchoring, fishing, or other sea-based activities.

  • Innovative Use of Heat-Pumps and Solar Panels

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
    Technology:

    The housing company Karlskronahem has eliminated oil from its heating systems by installing a number of different types of heat-pumps in innovative ways. One installation involves the installation of air-to-water heat pumps in the attic of apartment buildings that supply heat down to an external temperature of five degrees. The air in the ventilation is recycled through the system for heat recovery. The company has also installed solar panels for electricity production in order to become more self sufficient in terms of energy.

  • Intelligent Heating Systems

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    The public swimming pool in the municipality of Eslöv provides a perfect show-case of the intelligent heating systems developed by Eco Science. The system consists of the multi-layered accumulator tank and the intelligent control system that facilitates the integration of a number of heat sources, such as solar heating, a pellet burner, or other sources.

  • Involving Doctors and Nurses to Achieve Energy Efficiency

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:
