SymbioCity heating and cooling

Don’t lose your energy – sell it!

SymbioCity takes a holistic approach to sustainable development. We find synergies in urban functions and unlock their efficiency and profitability. This is the key to Swedish design and manufacture of energy-efficient power supply and distribution systems.

Fossil fuel: the black hole

Many countries are all too familiar with the consequences of fossil fuel dependency. Reduced purchasing power when oil and gas prices are soaring; a huge carbon footprint; dependence on uncertain fossil fuel supply; lost opportunities to create local jobs.

Combined heating and power production

Sweden has long been a showcase for planning and building combined heat and power plants (CHPs) and linking them to district heating systems. Waste thermal treatment plants can supply entire cities with energy for heating.

Surplus industrial heat can be used for heating instead of being lost. Indeed, selling surplus energy can even provide the extra income a company needs to survive. Excess heat can also be converted into cold to replace standard, energy-intensive cooling systems.

Energy heroes – district heating and cooling

Surplus energy capture is done using the tried and tested district heating and cooling (DHC) technique. District heating and cooling show remarkable energy efficiency: up to three times more efficient than conventional household heating and cooling. A regional DHC grid provides a flexible choice for safe, clean and reliable energy.

The solutions are scalable. A DHC project can start by tapping surplus energy from a CHP plant or industrial plant and use it to heat a nearby hospital, shopping centre or university campus. The energy source can also consist of a small or medium sized biofuel boiler. Over time, the grid can be gradually expanded.

In smaller communities, a biofuel boiler can supply the entire population with fossil-free comfort heating. This approach uses local energy and creates local jobs. Start small, think big! 

Success stories

In the Stockholm region, 70% of the heating demand is supplied by District Heating. Production plants are coordinated in one system – which optimizes efficiency and economies of scale. Stockholm also boasts the largest connected network for district cooling in the world. District cooling has a substantially lower environmental impact than conventional compressor cooling systems.

Heating and cooling from geo-energy.  In the city of Malmö, the Western Harbour area has a 100 % renewable energy system. Here, wind power supplies large heat pumps with electric power. The heat pumps are connected to an aquifier – a water energy storage. In summer, the system provides comfort cooling (moving heat energy to the water storage) and in the winter the system provides comfort heating (taking heat from the water storage). Stockholm/Arlanda Airport boasts the largest Geo-energy system of this kind in the world.
