A well-functioning society relies on high-quality infrastructure to meet its various needs. The imperative to address climate change is driving investments in renewable energy production and sustainable transportation systems. In particular, there’s a growing demand for the development and maintenance of railway networks to promote environmentally friendly transport. Simultaneously, the need for investment in conventional road infrastructure is on the rise, driven by both new road projects and the maintenance of existing road networks.
The continuous growth of the population, combined with urbanization trends, is generating a requirement for new investments, expansions and developments in infrastructure. Even within specific sectors like sewage and wastewater systems, there are promising growth prospects, as a significant portion of existing pipes are more than 40 years old. The importance of clean water has led to the constant upkeep and advancement of water treatment facilities and systems throughout the country.
Additionally, district heating has gained significance for many municipalities, with more than half of all residential and commercial buildings in Sweden relying on this method for heating. In the case of multi-family residences, the proportion is even higher, at nearly 90 percent. The expansion of district heating has played a crucial role in reducing carbon dioxide emissions in recent years and has contributed to improved air quality in urban areas and cities.
Akeab, Salboheds, JVAB and Mark & Energibyggarna are actively involved in offering services in the sectors of water, heating and transportation to address these pressing infrastructure needs and contribute to a more sustainable and well-functioning society.
