The activities implemented will create a common investment concept for two municipalities, aiming for the organisations to be fossil-free and creating deep energy reductions. The investment concepts will cover areas pointed out as crucial to reaching local and regional targets on energy and climate.
Measures aiming for the transition of the local municipalities (known at this point):
Actions will also target the society at large and create changes on a system level, including the creation of an infrastructure for fast charging of heavy transports and accessibility to electric cars for passenger transports.
The project is about a hydrogen production facility, including integration with the existing energy system. In addition, there will be a new bio-CCS and a new bio-char plant. For the charge-as-you-drive electric road, there will be the road integration of charging rail, charging infrastructure at end-points, transformer stations, and heavy vehicle adaptation.
Small-scale district heating using geothermal heat and low-temperature technology is also foreseen.
Diversity of energy renovation measures in existing building stock will be provided, including new installation of PVs (hardware and software, to be decided depending on individual building status).
The project is about energy efficiency measures in public and residential buildings. Measures include insulation, windows, ventilation, lighting, heating etc. The methodology used is the BELOK Total Concept, which includes a switch to energy-efficient street lighting and installation of weather and motion-activated automatic regulation. The goal is to go from 30% LED to 100% LED, with an estimated yearly energy use: 3 400 MWh. They will also install solar PVs on appointed flat unshaded roofs in e.g. shopping areas. Battery storage solutions for peak shaving will also be investigated. They will develop charging infrastructure for electric vehicles with the installation of approximately 1900 charging posts for the tenants' vehicles at residential buildings owned by the local public real estate company and 600 charging posts (of which 60 fast-chargers) for public use.
The emphasis is on the development of Uddevalla port through various sustainability measures, focusing on transport and energy. By providing fossil-free electricity to ships in the Port, the aim is to replace Marine Diesel Oil and contribute to fulfilling regulations/emission limits in the Skagerrak Sea. An underlying objective is to reduce health effects when replacing Marine Diesel Oil used close to inhabitants. The organisers will manage structural challenges to transform the infrastructure into a sustainable port system. To do this, they will buy 55 trucks and machines (electrical and hydrogen/fuel cell vehicles) and install PV 14MWp, wind power 15 MW, and batteries 20MW. They also foresee hydrogen production, storage and filling station, the first out of five hydrogen filling stations in Uddevalla.
Energy savings in existing public and residential buildings such as recycling of ventilation air, additional insulation of attics and facades, replacement of windows, replacement of older light sources with LEDs. Exclusively renewable electricity is purchased. Most of the properties are heated with fossil free district heating, heat pumps and bio pellets, some of the properties have fossil oil boilers to phase out. Other planned investments:
