These references are a few of our many customers among energy companies, building owners and automation industry
Kraftringen and NODA have been working together for several years with customer-centric energy services. Kraftringen sells NODA Building to their customers in their district heating systems. In total, they now have more than 30 customers connected, including some large housing communities. Since the activation of NODA Building these district heating customers have reduced their energy usage for heating with 10-12 % on average. In addition to this, the customers also gain access to a web-based user interface for evaluating energy savings, indoor climate data and all the other data collected in the district heating substation.
Kraftringen is an energy company with the ambition to lead the development of the energy of the future. Kraftringen is owned by the municipalities in Lund, Eslöv, Hörby and Lomma in the south of Sweden.
Norrenergi is working actively in helping their customer use energy smarter, for example with energy services. For this, NODA’s solutions are part of their portfolio. Through their service “Värmesmart”, NODA helps their housing community customers to reduce their heating costs and achieve a more even indoor climate. “Värmesmart” is based on NODA Building and the customer who used the system during the heating season of 2019 had an average saving of 13 %.
Norrenergi is a local energy company owned by the cities of Solna and Sundbyberg. The heat they deliver is almost 100 % renewable and certified as “Bra Miljöval”. The cooling they deliver is completely renewable. Their customers are in Solna, Sundbyberg, Bromma and Danderyd in the Stockholm region in Sweden.
Karlshamn Energi (SE)
Karlshamn Energi has connected about 90 buildings to Demand Side Management (DSM) through NODA Heat Network in their district heating system. The buildings are used as a virtual storage that Karlshamn Energi can activate from their control room. This extra flexibility is used to reduce peak loads during cold winter days, or to reduce the general energy usage during maintenance down-time in the nearby industry supplying excess heat as base load. The connected buildings represent about 15-20 % of the total annual heat demand of nearly 200 GWh.
Since the winter of 2019-2020, Dynamic Supply Temperature (DST) is also being evaluated in Karlshamn. DST is used for optimising the supply temperature from production and uses self-learning algorithms to continuously analyse the actual heat demand in the district heating system so that supply and demand is always matched evenly. This helps to reduce system temperatures which leads to financial as well as environmental benefits.
Karlshamn Energi and NODA have worked together for many years and has participated in several joint innovation projects where Karlshamn Energi has been an early test customer for new solutions.
Karlshamn Energi delivers electricity, district heating, broadband and water, and is owned by the municipality of Karlshamn.
C4 Energi (SE)
C4 Energi is the local and sustainable utility company in Kristianstad, which is one of the larger municipalities in the Skåne Region in southern Sweden. Their effort to provide end-users with sustainable energy solutions includes bio fuel based district heating as well as electric car charging and local electricity generation from one of Sweden’s largest solar power installations. Together with NODA, C4 Energi helps its district heating customers to reduce their heating costs and to get in control of their indoor climate. This is done with the NODA Building service, which is provided by C4 Energi to building owners in Kristianstad. So far a total of 19 multi-family buildings have been connected to the service, amounting to a total of 43 000 square meters of heated area. The service provides the building owners with information on the indoor climate via a web-based interface and helps the heating system to operate more efficiently by analysing temperature, energy and weather data. During the heating season 2020/2021, the average energy saving from the service in the buildings was 13 %, but savings are also achieved on heat demand which has a positive impact on the district heating network as a whole, as well as on the heating expenses since the heating price includes a demand-based component.
The collaboration with NODA has given us the opportunity for closer cooperation with our end-customers, where we discuss efficiency and cost savings from different perspectives.
