Test beds for climate change

Hammarby Sjöstad 2.0 is an initiative that is implemented together with our members and partners. The goal is to create a climate-neutral district by 2030.
All our projects are carried out in close collaboration with universities, research institutes, businesses and citizens in Sjöstan. Hammarby Sjöstad 2.0, has become a unique test bed that attracts researchers from Swedish colleges and universities as well as leading academies around the world. The ambition is for Hammarby Sjöstad to be a first choice as a Swedish node in future EU projects on sustainable urban development.
We are happy to participate in research and innovation projects and in recent years we have both applied for and received grants for several innovation projects. Fundamental to our commitment is that the project should be able to be conducted locally but also that it should have a national and international focus, ie that the test bed should be copyable for other districts and cities in the world.
We have extensive experience of collaborating with RISE – Research Institutes of Sweden AB, KTH – Royal Institute of Technology, IVL – Swedish Environmental Institute and Energiforsk, all of which are members of ElectriCITY and contribute with scientific quality in the projects we carry out together.

Nine examples of ongoing projects:

Energy:

Microgrids – a flexible
market for energy

Microgrids are a technical solution that means that we use existing electricity networks and add locally produced renewable energy that is stored and shared between the buildings. A system change that is not only profitable for property owners, but also for society as a whole since we avoid large investments in new CHP plants and expensive cabling.

Energy:

Hydrogen

Technological development around hydrogen has accelerated in recent years. New modern materials and manufacturing processes have pushed down the costs of both electrolysis equipment and fuel cells. ElectriCITY is now looking for project partners for a joint investment in hydrogen applications in a living test bed in an urban environment.

Transport:

Charging sites for electric cars and zero-zone

The project aims to reduce emissions of fossil fuels by focusing on electric cars, charging stations at home, setting up car pools and introducing environmentally friendly transport in Hammarby Sjöstad. The project has contributed to a sharp increase in the number of electric cars in recent years and the introduction of an informal zero-zone (a reduction of fossil-fueled transport) in the district.

Transport:

The smart unmanned loading dock

The local and national targets for reduced emissions require more coordinated and fewer heavy transports in the city centers. Transhipment centers and local transport hubs have proved to work very well on a smaller scale, but we are now ready to take the next step. We now invite relevant parties to participate in this collaborative project.

Digitization:

Fastighetsdatalabbet

Digitization permeates all our projects – from digitization of transport and energy and real estate systems to circular economy and skills development. Through digital technology, we can store information and data that can be used in sustainability projects and shared between different users. An example is our project Fastighetsdatalabbet – real estate data lab.

Digitization:

Property automation

The challenge for the real estate industry is to develop better digital platforms and intuitive tools for control, regulation, maintenance and visualization in order to switch to increased energy efficiency. We are now inviting various stakeholders to participate in a larger project that aims to open up today’s closed computer systems.

Circular economy:

Sharing Cities

Hammarby Sjöstad 2.0 is one of four test beds within the national program Sharing Cities Sweden. The initiative is ongoing in 2017–2021 with a budget of EUR 12 million and aims to examine the conditions for how sharing economy and civic engagement in Swedish cities can contribute to climate change.

Circular economy:

Viable Cities

ElectriCITY is a partner in a long-term strategic innovation program, Viable Cities. The aim is to assist research and innovation in the field of smart cities and thereby contribute to Sweden meeting its energy and climate goals and creating conditions for sustainable growth. The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) is the host and coordinator of the program.

Circular economy:

Cultivation + Waste heat = Klimatsmart odling 2.0

The project will build and test a greenhouse and cultivation system in Hammarby Sjöstad that uses the local Carnegie brewery’s waste heat as a model for innovative circular neighborhood cultivation. We are now looking for stakeholders who want to participate in a project with a focus on establishing urban cultivation for year-round production.
