Power station – a piece of cultural history
Location: The Kåkenhus Building, Campus Norrköping
The property industry accounts for almost half of the total energy use in society, and unceasing work with energy efficiency is necessary. Akademiska Hus is one of Sweden’s largest property companies and is working to make a difference in the field of environmental care, in the long-term and in a sustainable manner.
The Kåkenhus Building on Campus Norrköping is home to a piece of cultural history. The power station supplied electricity to the building, produced using energy from the river through Norrköping, Motala Ström.
Energy creates opportunities. This is what waterpower did during the peak period of Norrköping’s industrial era. And today, energy is one of our most important sources of development.
