Four out of 10 buildings in the Brofästet phase meet the energy requirement

The first buildings in the Brofästet phase reported positive energy use results after one year of operation. Stockholmshem’s plus energy buildings were 42 % better than the requirement, which indicates good form factor and good building and technical installation parameters. Tobin Properties also met the requirement, and their buildings have good building envelopes. Other developers continue to discuss with the City of Stockholm adjustments to energy systems to meet requirements.

EU initiative on energy positive city districts

Brussels, Vienna and Stockholm launched a two-years research and innovation collaboration. The project is co-funded by the Swedish Energy Agency under its energy positive districts scheme, a collaboration between Viable Cities and JPI Urban Europe.

One of the main objectives of the initiative purpose is to investigate how the Loudden area could become energy-positive. The project will also help to define what the term “energy positive” means more broadly. Experiences and lessons learned from the Norra 2 and Brofästet phases and previous innovation projects, form the basis of continued work on developing fossil-free energy systems.

Digital dialogue regarding temporary park

Prior to the completion of a permanent park between Brofästet and Kolkajen, a temporary park is planned. A digital dialogue about the temporary park was held in autumn. Some 440 participants submitted around 1,390 comments.

Proposals for a boules court, a barbecue area, and the variety of activities attracted the most positive responses. Planter boxes, café space, and vegetation were also popular aspects of the proposal, as well as wood decking for yoga and other activities. Many people also wanted wood decking at Husarviken – a wish that will be met – and space for food trucks on Bobergsgatan. Furniture and play equipment will be largely reused. Parts of the temporary park will open in the summer of 2021.

Winner of the 2019 Swedish Landscape Architecture Prize

“We have created climate-adapted and green spaces to increase wellbeing, biodiversity, and to manage stormwater effectively. The space between Jaktgatan and Lövängsgatan is a good example of how we work with multi-functional green structures,” says Gösta Olsson, who has worked as a landscape architect in Stockholm Royal Seaport for many years.
