Stockholm Royal Seaport

Stockholm Royal Seaport’s Smart Energy City project

In close cooperation with the Swedish Energy Agency, Fortum, ABB, Electrolux, Ellevio and KTH – the Royal Institute of Technology – Ericsson is uncovering how people change their behavior if they receive real-time information about their electricity consumption.

As part of the Smart Energy City project conducted in the Stockholm Royal Seaport, an eco-profile area with 12,000 homes and 35,000 workplaces, the companies have created a system that connects the apartments of 154 families with the smart grid, providing real-time energy consumption information directly into homes via an innovative service enablement platform.

The result? Answers to the most prominent question about energy use and how we can use renewable energy sources to develop energy-efficient homes.

Changing behavior to create sustainable energy consumption

Smart grids and renewable energy sources are used to develop smart-energy homes in Stockholm Royal Seaport.
