In Medicon Village – established by Mats Paulsson’s foundation for research, innovation, and community building – 1,600 people work at more than 120 life-science companies and organisations. One condition of the foundation is that all profits be reinvested in research. Therefore, the research park’s E.ON ectogrid™ and the energy savings it makes possible have a direct influence on the innovations created there.
Balanced and streamlined
Medicon Village E.ON ectogrid™ connects 15 commercial properties and residential buildings with different heating and cooling needs, and it has drastically changed the research park’s energy consumption. Before E.ON ectogrid™ was installed, approximately 10 GWh of district heating and 4 GWh of district cooling were supplied. The long-term goal is to balance 11 GWh and for the system to only need 3 GWh supplied energy. We are well on our way there.
What we liked about E.ON ectogrid™ is the possibility to circulate, reuse and share energy between our buildings. Medicon Village tenants are devoted to research and innovation within the life sciences. It’s equally important for us, as it is for our tenants, that the climate footprint from all we do here is as small as possible. E.ON ectogrid™ is an energy solution that goes very well with what we want to be – a sustainable and inventive research park for science and innovation.Erik Jagesten, CEO at Medicon Village Fastighets AB
