Malmoe

Project “Circular neighbourhood”

Project focuses on the understanding of energy consumption patterns on the district level.

On the outskirts of Malmo, Sweden’s third-largest city, a new neighbourhood called Hyllie is being built from scratch.

Underpinning Hyllie’s brand of circular design is the concept of active consumerism, giving residents the ability to understand their energy needs and control their spend. E.ON has made the process simple and seamless through mobile apps that facilitate automation. Residents can set their dishwashers and washing machines to run when electricity demand is low, and the temperature in their apartment to adjust itself at different times of day.
