The Sweden Pavilion, referred to as “The Forest”, is based on the idea of emerging smart cities within the Scandinavian woodlands, presenting a metaphor for the synergy of a bio-circular economy
The structures within the woodland landscape will showcase how technologies are brought together by innovative life sciences and smart cities.
Within the Sweden Pavilion, there will be 500 sqm of solar cells (BIPV) embedded into the roof structure and also 500 sqm of the façade of solar panels all showcasing technology available from Soltech Energy AB. Ferroamp’s EnergyHub system will be used to manage and supply the energy from the solar installations to power the Sweden Pavilion. Power consumption will also be reduced with the help of an energy storage installation using advanced Nilar Hydride batteries. According to Marcus Wigren, Nilar CEO, “The collaboration with Ferroamp and Soltech helps us highlight the cooperative spirit we have embraced within Sweden. We hope to embody the Expo 2020 theme as part of the sustainable display.”
It is an honour for Nilar to be one of the technologies exemplifying the expertise in Sweden at this global event. Nilar is proud to showcase our Nilar Hydride technology and modular bi-polar construction as an environmentally conscious and reliable power source with essential safety benefits. The sophisticated monitoring and control systems ensure safe and reliable operation as well as seamless integration into larger solutions. Nilar batteries embrace the circular economy philosophy as a central theme in all design and innovation and are ideal for storing solar and wind power and charging electrical vehicles for use in private households, commercial properties and industrial plants.
The World Expo is one of the largest and longstanding global events. Since 1851, the expo occurs every five years and showcases a large series of exhibitions and events taking place over a six-month period where attendees can experience, explore, innovate and engage with each other, working together towards a common theme. Expo 2020 aims to inspire by showcasing worldwide collaboration and innovation through the theme Connecting Minds, Creating the Future. Originally planned to start in October 2020, the event has been moved to begin on 1 October 2021 and will continue until 31 March 2022. The exhibition has three main areas: Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability. The Sweden Pavilion will be located in the area of Sustainability.
Expo 2020 are opening three of the thematic pavilions early as a preview of the event. The Terra – Sustainability Pavilion is open until 10 April and two others will follow soon.
