Fortum and Bonava have started commercial collaboration on solutions for smart living in Sweden. A solution is being developed for residents of apartment flats and single-family homes. The solution is expected to be installation-ready by the end of the year. The collaboration originated with the Smart Energy pilot project in Stockholm Royal Seaport, where Bonava is one of the area’s housing developers and Fortum is the energy partner in the pilot project.

“In the future energy system, energy production is increasingly dependent on weather conditions. It is important that energy consumption can be shifted to those hours when there is an abundance of production. With the solution currently under development, the energy consumption of residents can be adjusted easily and without compromising living comfort,” says Rami Piik, VP, Smart Home Solutions, Fortum.

With a display in a smart home, residents can monitor and control the consumption of water, energy and heat, as well as control lighting, appliances and electrical devices. Additionally, the system incorporates security, fire and water damage alarms. Residents can manage and control their home either via a separate display or through their own cell phone.

“The purpose of smart living solutions is to create comfortable homes that make it easy for residents to live sustainable lifestyles. By visualising, analysing and optimising consumption, residents can save up to 20% in their own energy consumption,” Rami Piik continues.

Installation of the solutions in new Bonava homes will begin during the last quarter of the year. According to Bonava’s plans, all new Bonava homes in Sweden will feature smart living solutions within five years.
