Malmö has undergone a major transformation with architectural developments and it has attracted new biotech and IT companies and particularly students through Malmö University.
Malmö has an average inhabitant age of 36. In Malmö, a seemingly simple looking residential building can boast of an abundance of smart technology such as urban wind turbines, solar panels on the roof, charging stations for electric and gas vehicles and a tower that contains the building’s energy management systems.
The increasingly tech-savvy population can monitor in real-time their energy consumption on a tablet app. - Malmö takes research into sustainable living to another level, with buildings that test smart solutions to reduce energy consumption with an emphasis on renewable energy.
Today, one third of all electricity produced in the city is from renewable sources, with the goal of ensuring the whole city runs on renewable energy in the next fifteen years.
The city’s green ambitions and achievements were recognized in 2013 when Malmö reached the impressive level of 98% of environmentally labelled IT products.
The improved standards of green procurement of IT products introduced in 2012 is estimated to save Malmö over €500,000 every year.
