NIB provides a loan to the Swedish real estate company Fabege AB to co-finance the construction of the BREEAM Excellent and FEBY Gold certified building Nationalarenan 3 that houses Scandinavia’s first zero-energy hotel.

The project is eligible for financing from the proceeds of NIB Environmental Bonds.

Fulfilment of NIB's mandate

Nationalarenan 3 is the first zero-energy hotel in Scandinavia. Electricity is generated using almost 2,400 square metres of solar cells on the roof and the façade with the installed effect of 355 MWh/year. In addition, 25 boreholes for geothermal energy provide heating and cooling for the building with a combined energy generation of approximately 576 MWh/year.

The building is designed to keep heat loss at extremely low levels and has achieved FEBY ‘Gold Plushus’ certification, a Swedish rating standard for energy efficient building. It is also certified in accordance with the BREEAM-Excellent green building certificate.

In addition, the new commercial building will be offering new capacity for the hotel market in the Stockholm region.
