For the new residential district some of the existing former barracks buildings will be preserved and converted into residential buildings and will be complemented by new buildings. Electricity, heating/cooling and electromobility sectors will be integrate into a cross-sectoral supply network.
For a new research format concepts were searched for an international energy competition. The awarded contributions gather local colleges, authorities, real estate owners and enterprises as well as the users in so-called Living labs.
This research project is investigating and developing an innovative multi-line network for supplying heat at the district level, which is capable of not only providing warmth but also absorbing locally produced heat.
Which stumbling blocks must be cleared up to enable the reduction of primary energy consumption targeted for 2050 in the building sector to be achieved? The expert workshop “Energy efficiency and cost-efficient building – a contradiction?” was intended to clarify what stakeholders can do for this.
