Energy from the Bedrock and the Sun in Jakobsberg Centrum

Jakobsbergs Centrum in the larger Stockholm area converted to geothermal heating and cooling in 2016, and in the spring of 2018 expanded the use of renewal energy with photovoltaics. The center now has the first combined solar and geoenergy plant installed in a shopping centre in Sweden. Together with the geothermal plant, approximately 78% of all heat and cooling consumed by Jakobsberg's Center will be manufactured locally. 
 
With its more than 50,000 square meters, Jakobsberg's Center is the largest shopping centre in Sweden that has converted to geoenergy. The complementary solar cell park consists of 330 solar panels that will have an annual output of approximately 80 MWh of electricity. This corresponds to the consumption of 20 family homes. All the electricity produced will be used in the shopping center: for fans, lighting and for the operation of the geothermal plant.
