Energy efficient society

Energy efficient society

Energy efficient community building is an area that contributes towards strengthening Dalarna’s position. The point of departure is the requirements that the world around us places on increased energy efficiency, decreased dependence on fossil energy sources, and a long-term energy conservation system that is based on renewable energy sources.

A prerequisite for such a development is new knowledge through research, innovation, and increased collaboration between players on different levels, both nationally and internationally. Together the knowledge area must participate in creating an improved innovation climate. It creates new products and services, which provide new companies and work occasions.

Energy efficient community building is based on collaboration between many regional players:

The Swedish Energy Competence Centre at Dalarna College, The clusters High Voltage Valley, Intelligent Transport Systems Dalarna, Byggdialog Dalarna and Triple Steelix, as well as Green Business Region at Dalarna Science Park, Energy Intelligent Dalarna at the Dalarna County Administrative Board and the Energy Office in the Dalarna region.

The collaboration creates a strong player within energy efficient community development.
