Project abstract

A parking house called Dansmästaren is being constructed in Rosendal, Uppsala. It is the first parking house of its kind in Uppsala, and aims to the be the first step in our innovation journey and a prototype for future parking houses in Uppsala, as well as a test site for renewable energy sources. Another ten parking or mobility houses are being planned for the coming 10 years as part of rapid city expansion and new political strategies to decrease the amount of parking spaces on the streets and refer parking needs to mobility houses. Dansmästaren is being built in collaboration with the municipally owned parking company Uppsala Parkerings AB, UPAB. Initially, Dansmästaren will include a 137 kWh Lithium battery system, a 60 kW solar panel system, sixty 22 kW charging points with V2G functionality, and an EMS (energy management system). The electrical system is, however, over dimensioned to make room for future installations and alterations.

Summary of work

The mobility house opened in the beginning on November and the development of the energy management system has started alongside preparing the measurement system.
A research twin is being developed at the Ångströmlaboratory which aims to be a miniature replica of the technical system at the mobility house Dansmästaren. The goal of the research twin is to be able to verify measurement and control strategies before implementing them on site.
A literature review of the research topic Electromobility has been started, with goal to result in at least one review article.
Two master thesis student are working on topics connected to the PhD project and Dansmästarens technical system to help further the research.
