Energy self-sufficiency saves money - GeoHouse Älykylä -smart village's energy production options explored


Investing in your own energy production is worthwhile. This is the result of a thesis on the energy solution of the GeoHouse Älykylä -smart village in Utajärvi. Of the alternatives compared, the hybrid option produced with wood chips and solar energy proved to be the most profitable.

Following the completion of the GeoHouse Älykylä regional plan for Utajärvi, ASV Arctic Smart Village Ltd has continued to explore options for energy production at the site. As part of the project, the company commissioned a thesis to study the energy needs of GeoHouse Älykylä and its potential for energy production. Miss Alisa Hast from Oulu University of Applied Sciences completed a thesis on “Energy Self-sufficient Residental Area”. In her thesis, Alisa Hast determined the energy demand of the exemplary house, and the profitability of the house-specific and centralized energy production, as well as the profitability of different energy solutions, were compared.
