Assignment/solution

Ecopilot® was installed in the existing control and regulation system in order to modernise the shopping centre and reduce the already low energy consumption. The technical status of the buildings varied, but the technical system design with a parent system was similar. In connection with the Ecopilot® installation, an expansion of the buildings by 50,000 m2 was also conducted.

Results

Frölunda Torg now has a significantly lower total energy consumption than before the extension owing to the installation of Ecopilot®. The indoor environment in the shopping centre has also been improved as the internal loads are handled in a more efficient manner.
