Gothenburg Central Station

This station is the traffic hub for Sweden's entire western region. The Central station, Centralhuset and Nils Ericsson terminal form Gothenburg Travel Centre, through which 90,000+ passengers pass through every day. The station was first constructed mid-19th century and has been reconstructed successively since then.

The Challenge

In 2009, a new control system was installed in the Gothenburg Central Station property as a part of a technical modernization project. In 2014,  Ecopilot® was installed to optimize the the five-year-old building automation system and deliver automatic and continuous energy efficiency savings.

The Results

Now Ecopilot® and the existing control system work together. Ecopilot® continuously estimates the property’s optimal energy operating mode by taking into account internal temperature data, external weather impacts and thermal storage capacity. This has resulted in a pleasant indoor environment and lower energy consumption.

  • 28% Yield on investment
