SummaryThe city of Malmö is located in the very south of Sweden and the third largest city in the country. Investment in solar energy is being made to strengthen and market the environmental profile of the city, to reduce CO2-emissions and to become more self-sufficient in energy. Malmö has also established the first Solar City Association in Sweden, with the objective to increase the use of solar energy and strengthen the solar energy market in southern Sweden. The work of the municipality has been going since 2001 and includes installation of several large PV plants on public buildings. All plants are retrofit installations. With a total of 15 PV-plants and a total area of 3400 m2 and a peak power of 500 kW, Malmö is the leading city in Sweden regarding PV installations.
