At Camp Grinsby, Staf Coppens’ campsite in Årjäng, Sweden, our partner Bureau 9000 is advising Staf on his dream to make Camp Grinsby an energy-neutral, sustainable campsite.

From Belgium to Sweden (a country that meets more than half of its energy needs from renewable sources), our energy management software is being used successfully in Årjäng.
Our partner Bureau 9000 (a study and energy consulting company) contacted Staf, and it soon became clear what added value they could bring.
The primary objective was to help Camp Grinsby become an energy neutral campsite. To achieve this goal, Bureau 9000 relied on Energis.Cloud to provide data-driven advice on energy transition through operational improvements, prioritising energy efficiency initiatives and conservation measures such as the installation of PV, heat pumps, solar panels and EV charging stations.
Detailed consumption and all energy saving measures need to be measured, verified and monitored. This is where Energis.Cloud makes the difference.
To successfully implement energy management, the following steps were taken:
- Choice of wireless communication technology. Due to the nature of the site and the geographical location, it was quite a challenge to do energy monitoring properly. The most economical and qualitative solution was to choose wireless communication.
- Staf needed to know not only how much energy was being used, but also how this was translating into financial costs, CO2 emissions, and where energy savings could be made.
The collaboration between Bureau 9000 and Energis.Cloud made it possible to:
- Measure each campsite individually, showing where abnormal consumption is coming from.
- Share insights with Camp Grinsby guests to better inform them of potential unnecessary consumption.
- Enable Staf Coppens and his guests to take immediate action when inefficient or excessive energy consumption is detected.
“By taking joint action, we can minimize our carbon footprint, and make sure we use the energy we consume wisely. I think that in recent decades too little thoughts has been given to it and that now we have the moral obligation to just do that, to be informed, and to ensure that we make the right decisions in the future.”
