Malmö gets more climate smart apartments
Eon is launcing a new energy system in Roth Estate’s tenement building in Hyllie in Malmö. The Eon Smart Home System is controlled through an iPod touch.
Every apartment is equipped with a Smart Home System regulating and controlling the energy use. Through a display tenants can follow their energy use in SEK. The tenants can also sign an energy contract connected to the cash prices on the electricity market Nord Pool.
The tenement buildings are also equipped with solar collectors and accumulators that can be charged with heating from the district heating system when the access to heat is good and the prices are low. The property will in its entirity be able to optimize its energy flow in relation to price and production, states Eon in apress release. There are also two charging posts for electric vehicles connected to the building.
“It’s in cooperation with the tenants that we can test smart and cost efficient solutions. In the end, the solutions become successful only if they place the tenants in the centre and follow how people actually want to live. To us it is important to offer an attractive residence and that we in the long run can keep down the costs, which is beneficial for the tenants,” said Rikard Roth, CEO at Roth Estate, in a press release.
