Agora – Knallerian

The property is a shopping centre comprising of roughly 90 stores, all situated in the trading area Knalleland one kilometre from Borås centre. The trading area has 7,000,000 visitors per year.

Assignment/solution

During a modernisation of the control and regulation installations it was identified that there was no one who could continuously optimise the new control system. We were then assigned to install an Ecopilot® which through over-modulation of the newly installed system continuously optimises the property’s energy consumption. Consequently a good indoor climate at a low cost would be attained.

Results

After conducted installation, the Ecopilot and the new control system work together. The Ecopilot continuously estimates the property’s optimal energy operating mode by taking into account internal user loads, external weather impact and thermal storage capacity. The result was a pleasant indoor environment and low energy consumption.

Energy classification

Knallerian now has a D-classification in accordance with the European standard for energy efficient buildings. This corresponds to 100–135 per cent of the new construction requirement for premises. Without an Ecopilot installation, Knallerian would have an E-classification.
