Sammendrag
The Snow for the Future – Phase 1 is complete, and the objectives are all fully or partially fulfilled. The work has been performed in accordance to plan, and the results are promising towards the next phase. The networking activities have given good feedback from industry, and several have committed to participating in the next phase.

The research has shown that there are several temperature independent snow production systems available today, but they have large improvement potentials with regards to energy efficiency. Integration of the production systems with heating demands is also a possibility, but requires significant amounts of building mass to be fully exploited.

A simulation tool for snow production and storage has been developed, and can be used to show how different weather, snowfall, production systems and so on will affect a facility. This is planned further developed to be a decision maker on production system investments.

Three masters students have been educated through the project.
