About Högdalen industrial area
In the heart of the energy management district of Högdalen, south of Stockholm, a local cluster of cleantech companies is starting to grow. In this district the Stockholm energy company Fortum turns 700 000 tonnes of waste into clean energy every year in one of Europe’s most modern plants. A new market for solar technologies, green buildings and energy efficiency is being driven by the urgent need to retrofit the entire industrial area.
Support from the Delegation for Sustainable Cities
In 2012 the city development initiative ”Högdalen 2020 – the sustainable industry city” received a grant from the agency Delegation for Sustainable Cities. It supports a local dialogue, networking activities and energy studies. The aim of the project is to establish a public–private partnership for a long term improvement of the district’s sustainability and energy performance. The project involves companies, real estate owners and research institutes.
The project welcomes professional visitors looking for cooperation with companies participating in the project as well as other cleantech companies in the Stockholm Region.
