Better Energy and Nilsson Energy develop world’s first self-sufficient hydrogen housing complex


Danish-Swedish partners, Better Energy and Nilsson Energy, have developed the world’s first energy self-sufficient housing complex in Vårgårda, Sweden where a block of 30 flats now runs entirely on solar energy and stored hydrogen (H2).

The solar-H2 Vårgårda project in Sweden is a breakthrough in clean energy and sustainable building. When the complex is completed and fully operational, a total of 172 flats in six housing blocks will be capable of operating completely free from external energy sources.

The project overcomes the challenges associated with supply and demand. A long-term storage solution was needed to provide electricity and heat when the sun shines less. By storing surplus energy in the form of H2, solar-H2 projects offer a 100% clean, green, long-term storage solution.

Why H2?
