The delegates from SEIA and BIEASDC met with Mr. Hans Bywall, CEO of DALA ENERGI for research, and visit to their bio-fuel based heating & electricity production and distribution system in Leksand, Sweden.
DALA ENERGI provides district heating and electricity to industrial buildings, apartment buildings, administration buildings, schools and cottages in Leksand and Insjön. The heat and electricity generated from their system is produced by the biomass collected from Dalarna forest, in the form of chips recycled from sawmills and forest residues during harvesting.
Mr. Hans Bywall emphasized that the vision of DALA ENERGI is to provide convenient, sustainable and affordable electricity and heat to the local community.
DALA ENERGI is also currently working on developing electricity network, infrastructure and facilities for electric vehicles in the region.
