Energy Performance with Dalkia

Press Release   •   Mar 07, 2013 09:00 CET

Energy Performance Contract

Pilot starts 1st of March and comprises of both electricity and water metering and visualization. The municipality of Hörby in the south of Sweden, a town of 15,000 where the winters are bitterly cold, has signed an energy performance contract (EPC) with Dalkia.

Optimize the Smart Enterprise

As per the agreement, the first of its kind in Sweden, Dalkia engineers and technicians now handle the maintenance and operation of heating, power and water facilities. This has enabled the municipality to assign its personnel to other, short-staffed responsibilities, and to better prepare for the retirement of some of its technicians, amidst a very tight labor market in this sector. The ten-year EPC guarantees the city a 10% reduction in heating and electricity costs for 34 municipal buildings, including schools, retirement homes and medical centers. Most of the savings come from optimizing building energy management through a centralized control system that enables utility use to be monitored and adjusted in real-time. Users are closely involved in the process. Schools in Hörby have been equipped with screens for monitoring consumption, for example, and a contest has been launched to encourage students to save energy. These low-capital-expenditure solutions are generating significant savings for Hörby.
