Åre Skidfabrik has always run its business with 100% renewable energy from Jämtkraft‘s local hydropower stations. In connection with the extension, conditions were provided for replacing the old heating system and implementing a major energy efficiency improvement. Together with experts in the field, we have developed a completely unique ventilation solution that recovers the excess heat from the ski presses.
“It’s absolutely fantastic” says Patrik Söderlund, who is the factory manager and co-founder, and continues, “With the excess heat from these two machines, we can heat up our entire factory building during working hours without adding any extra energy.”
In addition to this innovative solution, we have drilled 1000 m deep energy holes for a new waterborne geothermal heating solution. The combination of these two energy-smart systems means that Åre Skidfabrik has reduced its energy consumption by a total of 70 % per square meter.
