Today’s cities have an unavoidable impact on the environment, but adverse effects can be minimised. Sweco’s water and environmental specialists work with reducing harmful emissions, recycling waste and ensuring access to clean water. We also offer solutions that reduce climate impact and adapt society to a changed climate.
The interest in energy solutions that ration natural resources and are economically advantageous becomes even greater in matters of sustainable urban development. Here, geothermal energy – which has experienced rapid advancements in recent years and whose market is forecast to grow substantially – plays a significant role.
Geothermal energy means using the ground to supply buildings with heating and cooling solutions. It is a system that can be used to store massive quantities of heating and cooling in the ground, and subsequently use it when it is most needed. This makes the systems resource-efficient, while also being economically advantageous and environmentally friendly.
Sweco holds nearly 40-years’ experience in the area and our experts help our clients throughout the entire process, from feasibility studies and permit management, to design, procurement and support during the contracting process.
Geothermal energy systems require an understanding of the processes that take place in the ground and how they can be harnessed by building systems to effectively and efficiently supply buildings with heating and cooling. Through our network of collaborating experts in geology, architecture, project management and HVAC and sanitation, we can ensure specific expertise in each area to produce comprehensive and cost-effective systems.
