Energy savings in the Lugnet sports center
In 2009 Falu Fritid decided to carry out an energy efficiency optimization project at the Lugnet sports center. A public procurement was carried out and ÅF won the contract in tough competition thanks to its expertise and strong references from similar projects.
The energy efficiency assignment included an audit of the entire property. In connection with this, an action list with acute operational measures was drawn up. The investigation also identified a number of focus areas for further studies, such as the opportunities for heat recovery from a nearby ice rink, the need for a new ventilation system in the sports hall and insufficient cooling of district heating water, to name a few.
The potential that was identified in the energy audit and through in-depth studies in selected focus areas amounted to 2,500 MWh of district heating, or 65% of the total heating consumption, as well as 200 MWh of electricity, or 15% of the total electricity consumption.
