Dutch-Swedish Event on Sustainable Building & Energy Systems
5th of November 2020

 

Both Sweden and the Netherlands are frontrunners when it comes to working towards a sustainable future. Cities, and particularly sustainable ways of (re)creating our built environment and its energy systems are a major part of that. In order to further explore how we can learn from each other and reinforce each other the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Stockholm, Cleantech Scandinavia, InnovationQuarter and FME are organizing a digital Dutch-Swedish Event on Sustainable Building & Energy Systems on the 5th of November 09.30-12.00 and 14.00-16.30.

 

If you are a stakeholder in the field of sustainable building in Sweden, the organizing parties would hereby cordially invite you to join the program on the 5th!
Please note the morning program (part 1) is invitation only.

 

Would you like to join the event? Please register here.

Various Swedish projects are shortly presented.

Stockholm is growing rapidly and 140,000 new homes are planned by 2030. Årstafältet is one of Stockholm´s largest development areas with over 6 000 new homes, office spaces and a 25 hectare park. The new city district will be fully developed in 2033.”

Introduction to the project by Mattias Nilsson, Project Leader at City of Stockholm and John Lindell, Vice President at Nordfeldt

Stockholm Royal Seaport is the largest urban development area in Sweden with at least 12,000 new homes and 35,000 workplaces. Planning work started in the early 2000s and the new city district will be fully developed around 2030. 

Introduction to the project by Staffan Lorentz, Head of Development, Norra Djurgårdsstaden.

Everyone is talking about a smarter, more sustainable future. In Brunnshög, this future is being realised. And it is being created around the people who will live here, focusing on their future needs.

The realisation of Brunnshög’s vision creates an inspirational and global living environment, where up to 40,000 people live and work. It includes top-class facilities and laboratories along with a dense and mixed urban environment with varied housing and lush parks, shops and schools, workplaces and services. The best place to be – and the most stimulating and interesting.

Introduction to the project by Eva Dalman, Project Manager at Municipality of Lund

Sara Kulturhus is one of the frontrunning projects in Sweden when it comes to sustainable design and construction. The City of Skelleftea and White Arkitekter have pioneered in the integration of innovative materials and technologies in the 20-story building that will become home to various cultural initiatives and a hotel.

Break-out Sessions 1

14.10

During the break-out sessions we discuss various developments and challenges within the Sustainable Building & Energy Systems area from a Dutch and Swedish perspective. The goal is to exchange knowledge and expertise and see how the participating Dutch and Swedish parties could potentially work together.

1) Circularity in building: business models & institutional infrastructure
In this workshop we focus on the business models and institutional infrastructure required to shift buildings and neighbourhoods to a circular model. Whilst circular solutions like design for disassembly are often discussed, the construction industry is slow to adopt them. Why is this? To explore this challenge in an engaging way we focus on 3 solutions and together identify barriers and enablers which could give those solutions leverage. 

With Ivana Kildsgaard, Director of Sustainability and Quality at Tengbom + Alice Haugh, Strategic Design Lead at Space & Matter

2) Sustainable energy solutions for the built environment
How do we generate sustainable energy in urban environments and how do we optimize the use of that energy? During this session we discuss Swedish and Dutch examples and challenges. We do not only exchange technical expertise but we also look at how to motivate the end-user, be it private, commercial or public, to invest in and manage those technologies.

With Mikael Dennbo, Innovation and Sustainability Strategist at Kraftringen 

3) The role of digitalisation in sustainable building
Digital solutions can make a major difference in working towards sustainable property management. However, obtaining such digital transformation in a rather traditional sector offers lots of challenges as well. In this session we discuss some of these challenges by looking into the use of single point solutions versus platform solutions, discussing the business case for digitalisation in property management, and sharing experiences on how innovative proptech solutions can best be scaled internationally.

With Magnus Svantegård, Digital Investment & Transformation at Stronghold and Co-founder of Nordic PropTech Initiative and Niklas Dalgrip, Operations Manager at SISAB

Break-out

Sessions 2

15.30

During the break-out sessions we discuss various developments and challenges within the Sustainable Building & Energy Systems area from a Dutch and Swedish perspective. The goal is to exchange knowledge and expertise and see how the participating Dutch and Swedish parties could potentially work together.

1) Wood in Sustainable Building: the Dutch-Swedish Narrative
If there’s one material that can make a huge difference in creating more sustainable living environment it’s wood. In this session we compare the Swedish and Dutch expertise and approach to building with wood. Then all participants are invited to co-create a Dutch-Swedish narrative for wood as a key element in sustainable construction by assessing its impact from various angles such as (modular) design and its technical implications, industrialization of the building process, and cost and quality control through PropTech.

With Susanne Rudenstam, CEO The Wooden building office and Ruben Lentz Partner at BLOC

2) Sustainable Building in Public and Cooperative Housing
In this session we explore how the public and cooperative housing sector goes about integrating sustainable solutions and how that differs between Sweden and the Netherlands. We discuss how new innovations for the sector are tested, what influences the decision to adopt certain technologies on a commercial scale and look at the role of SME companies in providing those technologies.

With Jonas Högset, Director of Real Estate & Housing at Sveriges Allmännytta, Mårten Lilja, Deputy MD at Riksbyggen and Eva Kouraki, Project Manager at HSB Living Lab
