Testbeds for increased innovation in the construction and real estate sector

The platform of testbeds are designed with flexibility and adaptability in mind. It is designed so as to be able to incorporate almost any product or service imaginable, and together with other solutions make one integrated real-life trial system.

KTH Live-In Lab Datapool

The datapool is our portal to data from testbeds and research results. It is open for students, teachers, researchers and industry partners.



Some current projects at KTH Live-In Lab

Solar panels on roof

Turnkey solutions with PV and energy storage

Solar cells combined with energy storage systems (ESS) are a promising alternative for reducing emissions in urban environments.

Plan view


The project focuses on new solutions for the sustainable student housing of the future. The vision is to develop a collective living (co living) that is at the forefront in terms of social, economic and ecological sustainability.
