Sponsra en scoutkår

Att bli sponsor till en scoutkår, i mitt fall Karlsro Scoutkår Uppsala, är nog en av de viktigaste saker jag gjort. Att stödja en inkluderande verksamhet som verkligen tar hand om fantastiska ungdomar. ”Alla skall med” som hela gänget ropade på sista mötet för våren, där det bjöds på nyfångad aborre och vegan knyte i glöd, sång, solnedgång samt massa massa schysta kompisar som alltid är redo att hjälpa till.

Men vad innebär ett sponsorskap med en Scoutkår? Man får ju inte sin logga på scoutdräkten direkt. Nej det är inte som med sportföreningar. Scouting är så mycket större och sponsorskapet är ett ansvarstagande och statement och handlar inte om lättförtjänt försäljning av mer produkter. Jag Joachim Lindborg står själv för ett stort ansvarstagande och och arbetar för en hållbar inkluderande framtid.

Jag jobbar med energisystemets omställning

Jag jobbar med solceller i mitt projekt .

och jag jobbar som projektledare inom

Målet med watt-s är att alla borde ha lite solceller. Känslan av att producera egen solel är fantastisk den är medryckande och förändrar sättet man tänker på energi. Precis som att delta i scoutverksamhet det ger en större mening och man ser till att ta ett större ansvar.

Tack alla scoutledare och scouter för allt ni gör för varandra och för andra.

Innovation på ELfack 2019

På kraftscenen i göreborg under Elfack 2019 höll Joachim ett mycket uppskattat föredrag om innovation i elnätet och framtidens energisystem


En av de stora klimatutmaningarna idag är hur vi effektreglerar i elnäten och över hela världen händer snabba förändringar i energissytemen. En omställning från hur vi effektreglerar idag är nödvändig om vi ska klara de internationella mål som ställts. När elnäten är ansträngda används främst fossilkraft för att fylla på det där sista som behövs i elnäten. Ofta pratas det om att vi måste få till en beteendeförändring och att man måste bli mer medveten om energisystemen. Men är det så? Handlar det inte mer om att vi måste jobba med smartare samarbetande system? Landsbygden har här en fantastisk möjlighet att bidra till att städerna får den effekt som behövs och i städer finns det massor av effektslukande system som skulle kunna köras smartare.

Joachim Lindborg kopplar ihop utmaningarna med de flexibilitetsprojekt som drivs runt Uppsala och den stora potential flexibilitet faktiskt har i energisystemet.

Grid Power Workshop

Together with the county government of Uppsala and the Uppsala municipality we held a workshop on the subject of the lack of capacity in the regional grid of Uppland. I have participated in several of the initiatives and is currently working alot with these solutions.

Live-in smartgrid is an initiative that I’m managing in through Sustainable Innovation, We try to make the whole region a testbed for smartgrid solutions. It’s a continuation on the the two very well renowned project ”coordinating power control” (#Väx_El) and ”Wise electricity” (#Klok_EL)

Here is my presentation (partly swedish) from the event

Winning a world price. ISGAN awards 2018

On the 25th of may, The project I manage receved a very prestigious price from the hand of the Swedish minister of energy Ibrahim Baylan, during the world event ”clean energy ministerial CEM9” .

The price was the ”ISGAN award of excellence with focus on smart grids for flexibility”. We won the price based on the project ”coordinating power control” or for short #Väx_El which I’m leading at Sustainable Innovation

In the project we are combining heatpumps, solarcells, batteries and EV charging to help the grid owners managing peak power. This is very important

Me and Ibrahim actually have met before at Intel where we made a presentation of the previous project ”New collaboration models on the  energy market” #Klok_El

My time vs future generations. Saving on carbon

Today I’m doing a simple journey going from my home Uppsala Sweden to Stuttgart Germany for a meeting in the Eu project NemoGrid.

No big deal, just book a flight, add a hotel and you’r done in less than 5 minutes with bonus programs and a nice hotel. The map connected sorting routines creates easy choices. Several sites makes it so easy to fly. But that’s a journey generating 324Kg Co2, so to go less fossil than that I choose to go by train for only 16Kg of  Co2.


Local bus stop, first bus to town -6C

Sustainable innovation is a somewhat unique company where we try to do the right thing and help in enabling  a sustainable future. Minimizing Co2 is one goal and our policy’s reflects that, flying should therefore be avoided. So when a compulsory EU meeting in Stuttgart I saw my chance to do a change.

So I start my quest to make the train. Google helps me with finding possible routes (not done by any train companies) and I have to separately find and pay for all parts of the journey, not that easy to create accounts in german, compared with all the flight services. I have put done at least 3h to nail down the alternatives and a suitable hotel.

All in all I’m now on a 17h train journey to Stuttgart to save 300+ Kg of Co2. My time vs saving future generations life, cheap price? Would you do the same?

05:11 passing  Arlanda airport

Arlanda airport, train station

So taking the right decision is usually uphill. The smooth systems around flying is so much easier and less time consuming. This post would have ended here jumping off and doing the security check and boarding of a flight airport transportation etc.

But I’m continuing on the train reflecting. That the time spent is more productive and less stress full. Will it be worth it?

06:20 leaving Stockholm on time

Connected power time to work. x2000

Perfect worktime and a short nap. SJ delivers good internet coverage and an ecological healthy bistro. But 10 min late to malmö. Next stop will be crusial Copenhagen with change time of 15 min to my hamburg train. Please prove me wrong …

Late in malmö

and we made it with 2 min excess time. Sustainable innovation office is now on the Hamburg train.

13:35 arriving to Rödby for 45 minutes ferry to Puttgarten on time. This is going like clockwork just finished of a few more work things.

16:36 Darn, connection to Frankfurt missed in Hamburg with just a few minutes. But extremely good service at the platform rebooked instantly for 17.25 arriving an hour later to Hamburg but it’s a direct train and no changes …

Update 21:04 at Frankfurt.

It’s going well and it has been really good quality on the trains with  access to power and internet. So apart from the ferry and extra hour at Hamburg I have been able to work most of the time.  Now it’s just 2h left before arrival at Stuttgart HBF.

23:00 arrival at destination Stuttgart HBF since I new I would be arriving very late I booked a hotel at the station building, good choice.

Hotel at the station good choice

23:50 update: the local beer is really good. I walked around for a while and found a nice place.

Nice local place with good music nesenbach


watt-s is Finalist in openstockholm awards

In the #IoT 4real hackaton we won with the watt-s service connected to a smart wallsocket measuring energy and matching it with the corresponding amount of energy that public solarpanels produce in Stockholm. And we are now one of 6 finalists that in January will compete on how to make  a ”climate-smart Stockholm”

Join watt-s now

The service watt-s is coming together now and I made a talk on Solforum organised by the Swedish department of energy.

With the service we give everybody a chance to start producing solar energy. We do it in very small portions you can cover the usage from your mobile with just 3 watt-s (Around half a A4 paper).

Why not start you too? register your email as a test user

We are also part of a research projectfunded by the Swedish Department of Energy.

Microsoft support, scam, still happening

Got a call from USA  +119016827157 a man with Indian accent tried to get me to install ”anydesk” to remote control my computer. Very fun to play along and listen.

This has been going on for so many years. It’s horrifying that they still are doing this and actually getting money from people. Please tell everybody you know that it’s a scam.



Lite om hur detta fungerar på svenska

found this fantastic example of trying to unveil who the scammers are

Please help and report to Microsoft Scam

Releasing a service for easy solar access

I have for a long time been thinking about a a Solar Energy service that makes it easy for people to take the decision to buy solar energy.

Going solar today is hard, it takes both investment and effort to get it onto your roof. With the  service watt-s You  get solar energy  just a click away. Buy one Watt at a time.

The project ”Watt by Watt” is now running and partly funded by the Swedish Energy Agency.
