Powerful installation at Konstfack
Solar panel arrays have been installed on the roof of Konstfack (the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design) in Stockholm, which is contributing to a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by around 60,000 kg per year.
Since ÅF works with all aspects of solar energy, from feasibility studies to design and inspection of solar power systems, the company was the preferred choice to take responsibility for the installation.
Solar panel arrays have been placed on four of the 19 roof lanterns and cover a total of 700 square meters of the roof area. The building will produce an estimated 66,000 kWh per year, which is equal to the total electricity demand for five electrically-heated single-family homes. Because sunlight does not contribute to increased carbon dioxide emissions, the installation on the roof of Konstfack reduces emissions by around 60,000 kg per year. This corresponds to a reduction in oil consumption by around 21 m3 per year.
