TRIANGULUM Site Stavanger


Project status



The Stavanger region is regarded as one of the most innovative regions in Norway. For 10 consecutive years it has been appointed The Best Business Region in Norway (NHO) and is renowned for its close triple helix cooperation among businesses, academia and the public sector. The region aims at becoming one of Europe’s foremost sustainable cities by integrating ICT, energy and mobility.In the Stavanger area, one district in particular – Paradis/Hillevåg – will be transformed into a living lab as part of the TRIANGULUM project. Within this area, substantial changes will take place in buildings, such as 100 private homes fitted with integrated solutions and smart generic gateways. Services include heat and light control, innovative video solutions, security/safety features and charging for electric vehicles. Stavanger sees smarter homes as a crucial part of building a smart city due to the opportunities in enabling the inhabitants to develop the smart city.

The interventions include:

  • installing a renewable energy plant for three major municipal office buildings, making the energy supply for light and heating greener and reducing the CO2 emission;
  • developing and installing a smart generic gateway at a school and a nursing home, which will allow for the use of innovative video solutions, strengthened energy efficiency, building automation and smart charging of e-vehicles;
  • developing a cloud data hub for gathering and analysing big data from the project;
  • spreading knowledge on the new integrated solutions, as well as contributing towards the development of a business framework for smart cities.

Demo Site Expected Impact


For the Stavanger region, TRIANGULUM means making a difference for its citizens and enabling new business and research to be spread, both in mature and new markets. The impact will be measured according to the following indicators:

  • Lowering emissions, both by enabling people to make the right choices and introducing equipment and infrastructure for electric mobility;
  • Improving the quality of public transportation and thus increasing its competitiveness compared to individual motorcar traffic;
  • Smarter houses make cities smart – decision support, energy control, safety and comfort;
  • Lowering energy consumption, both in dwellings and public buildings;
  • 75 % of the heating requirement to be covered by renewable energy in the buildings that the municipality’s new energy plant (centre) will serve;
  • Meaningful citizen involvement in everyday life;
  • Seeking business opportunities globally.
