Abstract [en]

Sweden has one of the lowest solar energy productions in Europe even though the weather conditions are comparable to Europe’s largest solar energy producer. Although the majority of the Swedish population is in favour of spending more money on services that can limit climate change, the growth of installed solar cells is slower than that of other countries with similar climate in Europe.

To inspire people to install solar panels we created an interactive map with information regarding the solar parks in Uppland, a county in Sweden. Our goal was that this system would help spread awareness of the fact that solar parks work efficiently in Sweden. The program was then installed on a tablet which was put in a public space together with an LED installation to reach as broad of an audience as possible. To draw the passer by’s attention, the LED installation was connected to the map which shows the energy production of the selected solar park in a colour scale.

Abstract [sv]

Sverige har en av de lägsta produktionen av solenergi i Europa trots att deras väderförhållanden är jämförbara med Europas största producenter av solenergi. Även fast majoriteten av Sveriges befolkning är villiga att spendera mer pengar på tjänster som kan begränsa klimatförändringar är tillväxten av nya solpaneler långsammare än i andra Europeiska länder med liknande klimat.

För att inspirera personer att installara solpaneler har vi skapat en interaktiv karta med information gällande solparker i Uppland. Vårt mål är att programmet skulle öka medvetenheten om solparkers effektivitet i Sverige. Programmet blev sedan installerat på en surfplatta som monterades på en offentlig plats tillsammans med en LED-installation för att nå en så omfattande publik som möjligt. För att dra till sig förbipasserandes uppmärksamhet så kopplades LED-installationen till kartan som visar energiproduktionen hos den valda solparken i en färgskala.
