Umeå Energi is a company that will be needed to map the use of energy in their facilities. This thesis is an indication of how this mapping will be like and what the result of the tunnel will show. Together with Umeva, Umeå Energi has a 3,5 kilometres long tunnel where the district heating and district cooling pipes goes. There are also pipes for sewer and drinking water. More thoroughly the thesis shows the energy use of the tunnel and also problem solving for better energy efficient considering ventilation. The quality of air in the tunnel is also analysed where the relative humidity of air is the most studied. The aims of the work are that Umeå Energi can reduce their electrical energy use and that they will get a better knowledge about the air quality in the tunnel. Measurements that where done was for some of the electric devices in the tunnel and there were also previously measurements done for the relative humidity of air, temperature and radon. The payments that has been for the tunnel under 2014 comes from an electrical energy use at 180000 kWh. An investigation about the electricity to the tunnel is done in the thesis and the conclusion is that the real electrical energy use of the tunnel should be 200000 kWh for 2014. The total energy use of the tunnel for 2014 is 460000 kWh, where heating and electricity are included. The analysis of the humidity problem results in that the inlet temperature of air is too high in relation to the air temperature of the tunnel and also that there is an inflow of small water amounts on several parts of the tunnel. Through these factors the relative humidity of air gets more worse and gets as high as 83-84 % in the tunnel. It also comes forward that one of the fans may bring polluted air to the tunnel. If the old fans are replaced by new EC-fans the electrical energy use will reduce. If all the fans would be replaced it gives a positive annuity of 10100 SEK/year but if the fan at Uminova not is replaced it gives a positive annuity of 11200 SEK/year. The payback time of the later choice is approximately 4 years.
