Purpose and goal
EnergyLab is a further development of an existing test bed infrastructure in Uppsala, where the public sector makes available resources in the real estate sector for testing and verification in the form of buildings, competences and other resources. In this pilot study ´STUNS Energi´ has aimed to design the EnergyLab by evaluating the ongoing trial activities in Uppsala and thereby identify possibilities and prerequisite for an open real test environment.
Expected results and effects
The pilot study EnergyLab has shown that the ongoing collaboration between STUNS and three municipal companies has great potential to include an enhanced EnergyLab, and to be expanded further on. Experiences from the pilot study contributes to increased efficiency in the work with testbeds, which opens up to include more companies in the collaboration. Through EnergyLab, innovators and start-up companies are provided access to real-world user environments for testing and demonstration, as well as municipal companies getting support with their work on energy sustainability.
Planned approach and implementation
The pilot study has been carried out with STUNS Energi as project coordinator in collaboration with three municipal property companies: Skolfastigheter AB, Industrihus AB, Sport- och Rekreationsfastigheter AB. In the pilot study, ongoing test bed activities have been evaluated and the role of the project partners has been defined. A project model for how test installations are initiated and implemented has been anchored with relevant parties. To provide further exchange for the testbed, different communication routes have been identified and evaluated.
