A settlement consisting of pre-fabricated houses in Wuppertal Germany is a living lab for future energy concepts of city quarters. The 19 modern and fully equipped exhibition houses are all efficiency plus houses (energy plus houses) according to the definition of the German Building Ministry, e.g. they generate more renewable energy than the total energy use of the houses if balanced over a year. Each house features an electrical heat pump, a photovoltaic (PV) field on the roof and partly the facades and electrical storages (batteries).

Data centres are among the biggest electrical energy consumers. In the Renew IT project scientists from five countries examined how data centres could be supplied almost entirely with renewable energy. This BINE project info presents a case study of an office building in Stuttgart in which a heat pump cools the in-house data centre and at the same time provides heat to the building.     To download the document, please visit the relevant BINE webpage at the link provided below.
