High Voltage Valley -
enabling tomorrow’s energy efficient society


To strengthen and develop our region’s world-leading position in high-voltage power technology is the common goal of all our projects. Developing innovations, products and services is our main goal as well as creating strong supplier networks and finding the right competence for our region.

Elways develops a system that allows electric road vehicles to charge while driving, rather than having to stop and charge at a stationary location. This eliminates the present limitation of batteries and increases the range of electric vehicles.

Energy matching – Horizon 2020 project
LudvikaHem is part of an international development project “Energy matching” funded via Horizon2020. 
The project "Energy matching", which in short means matching different types of energy from different energy sources, heat pump, solar cells, etc. and how energy storage can be used. 
LudvikaHem and High Voltage Valle will host an activity for all project participants from all countries involved in April 2018.

We hope to further develop our engagement in international research and development of power engineering. We want to strengthen and stimulate collaborations between academies, institutes and companies in growing economies.  

Capacity Building, Africa, Electrical Power Systemsis a collaboration between Swedish and African universities, supported by Swedish trade and industry.

HVV Walk
How can High Voltage Valley highlight and make the research and development that is conducted in Ludvika visible as a world leader in power technology?
We now make new plans for our High Voltage Valley Walk!

Solar Energy
It is very satisfactory that we within the framework of Samarkand/High Voltage Valley have managed to create a well-functioning team that involves a wide-range of local business partners, and that we together use and benefit from the world-leading experience that this area has to offer.

Student project in solar energy in Ludvika
Friday 11 January students from Dalarna University visited High Voltage Valley to present the results from two projects performed as part of a Project Management and Organization Course,
The 15 students from all over the world are enrolled in a master program in solar energy. The projects have been performed in cooperation with High Voltage Valley, Ludvika municipality, LudvikaHem and VB Elnät.
The project Energy Matching aims at integrating solar energy in apartment houses in Sunnansjö and thereby minimizing use of pellets as well as electricity from the grid"
One group has worked on a local energy storage system for Ludvika. The study is based on a risk analyses made by Ludvika municipality (UPOS) and the main purpose is to use local energy resources to setup a microgrid in case of emergency.
