Challenge / Goal

To succeed in energy-positive districts, energy storage together with smart control strategies are used to optimize energy production and consumption as well as minimize energy costs. The Lippulaiva shopping centre together with surrounding buildings creates a district with a multi-mix consumption and the potential to achieve zero-energy level and beyond. Heating and cooling demand of Lippulaiva shopping center as well as residential buildings and senior house is mostly covered with heat pump plant.

The heating and cooling demand in Lippulaiva shopping center is mainly covered with on-site geothermal heat with heat pump (system by Adven). Beside the heat pump system, Lippulaiva will have district heating connection and electric boiler for back-up heating system and for peak heat demand. The on-site waste heat is utilized when possible. Electricity demand is covered with PV panels (roof) and certified renewable electricity.


  • Thermal energy is stored in the ground (boreholes), in which excess thermal energy will be returned to and stored in the ground.
  • An electric battery in Lippulaiva is used to optimize electricity usage and participating in electricity reserve markets.
  • On-site RES production includes a 4 MW regenerative ground source heat pump plant, approximately 50,000 m of bore holes and a PV system with peak power of approximately 634 kWp. Figure 3 below shows hourly heat consumption profile in one year of Lippulaiva (simulated data).
  • Energy consumption and production are smartly controlled.
