Trondheim

Description

Trondheim is situated in central Norway by the Trondheim Fjord and is Norway’s third most populous city. Trondheim is situated where the river Nidelva meets the Trondheim Fjord and is known as an important harbour city. The city is the major public transport and logistic hub in Central Norway and Mid-Scandinavia. Trondheim has a population of about 190,500 people, with the wider region exceeding 280,000 inhabitants. The core of the city has a total urban area of just over 340km2, with a population density of 557 per km2. Trondheim is a strongly growing city, with a low unemployment rate (2.5%).

Trondheim will emerge as a city with happy, healthy, and regenerative citizens. To make this happen, innovation is needed for new energy solutions in transportation and buildings. Our demonstration areas are: Sluppen-Tempe is one of Trondheim’s major transformation areas. It has a massive focus as a sustainable urban development area with corporate, public buildings and dwellings. The area is a targeted Zero Emission Area. A new school and a health and welfare centre at Sluppen will be built together with a large number of new dwellings.Sluppen-Tempe includes both electrical and thermal loads. Brattøra is a workplace area including the city’s harbour, hotels, museums, convention centre and sports facilities. The demonstration area includes the office building Powerhouse, the Business College of Trondheim BI and one more office building. All of them already connected via a common energy management system and solely based on electricity. Brattøra will undergo densification in the years to come through apartment buildings and the Trondheim Station Centre, which combines public transport depots, offices and dwellings. Campus Gløshaugen encompasses seven buildings varying from old educational buildings to office buildings and the new Valgrinda ZEB Flexible Lab. NTNU is also in the process of building a new city campus, which will be completed over the next 10 years. Gløshaugen is its own concession area for both district heating and electricity and has its own Microgrid.
