Despite low prices on fossil energy there is still a global focus on future-proofing the energy system, increasing the use of waste heat and converting to biomass, wind and solar. Based on our customers' wants and needs Sweco's experts work on finding sustainable solutions from the earliest concepts to the final operation. We work with Asset Management using ISO55000 and we take pride in building solid plants where the result is a reliable, cost-effective and environmentally sustainable energy supply.
District heating and district cooling involve the distribution of hot and cold water respectively. Surplus heat and cooling from industrial and commercial zones are key components in the provision of competitive solutions based on sustainable cost-effective concepts.
Sweco has long-standing experience of district heating and district cooling. We assist in optimising existing areas and developing new ones, to ensure they are based on sustainable fuels, heating pumps, solar energy, surplus energy from manufacturing processes, etc. We perform marketing-base analyses, network analyses and systems analyses; we carry out public procedures for and manage construction works; we optimise and merge existing networks; we evaluate customer installations; and we rebuild inefficient exchangers and production systems.
Sweco delivers studies and solutions at a more strategic level, including development plans, financial project proposals, maintenance and investment plans. In addition, we provide advice relating to the optimising of supply systems involving multiple players, e.g. through consultancy on the configuration of agreements between transmission and distribution companies.
