Conversion to geothermal heating

In 2018, investments were made in the Solsten 1:102 property, where Oriola is a tenant. These involved converting from district heating to geothermal heating with drilling of 26 energy wells, which reduced energy consumption by 980,000 kWh per year and an annual saving of approximately SEK 750,000. We also decided to use low-temperature underfloor heating systems at the three most-recent new construction projects. This entails 78 percent lower energy consumption than current requirements of the Swedish National Board of Housing, Building and Planning and a considerably lower environmental impact.
