On the website StockholmRoyalSeaport2030.se interested parties are able to follow our sustainability journey closely. This is where progress in the run-up to 2030 is being published. One can see how well the requirements are being met, and the various innovation projects are explained in more detail.
By 2019, 13 detailed development plans had been approved and 6,600 residents moved into the area across 3,000 new dwellings. Also, parts of the Gasverket gasworks area were opened with a new school and sports hall after having been closed to the public for more than 120 years.
Innovation plays an important role for Stockholm Royal Seaport, and the area is a test bed where new ideas, methods and approaches are being developed and tested. During 2019 the support for projects related to source-separated wastewater systems has continued. For example, the MACRO innovation project has contributed to Stockholm Vatten och Avfall, now having the responsibility to develop and test source-separated wastewater systems for Värtahamnen and Loudden. By dividing wastewater streams into separate systems in residential properties, resources such as water, energy and plant nutrients can be managed more efficiently.
Another example of innovation in the area is the two plus-energy buildings at Brofästet, completed in 2019. One of the requirements for the buildings was that they should generate more energy than they consume during the course of a year. The buildings combine architectural solutions with energy saving technologies. The buildings together contain 43 rental apartments.
