Die BINE Projektinfo präsentiert ein energieeffizientes Quartiersprojekt in der Münchner Innenstadt. Im Stadtteil Haidhausen wurde von der städtischen Wohnungsgesellschaft GWG ein Komplex aus mehreren Mehrfamilienhäusern aus den 1950er Jahren energetisch saniert, nachverdichtet und CO2-neutral mit Wärme versorgt. Das Kernstück des Nahwärmeheizsystems ist eine Gasmotor-Wärmepumpe, die Grundwasser als Wärmequelle nutzt und die Gebäude beheizt und das Trinkwarmwasser erzeugt.

Making our homes greener and more energy efficient is crucial if Europe is to realise its environmental targets and ambitions. But securing financial fuel to retrofit existing properties is tough, with investors often wanting to inject their cash into projects that deliver relatively quick returns.   Just because your home was built in the 1950s or 60s doesn’t mean it can’t be green. Retrofitting – the process of modernising properties using the latest technologies – can save energy and reduce CO2 emissions.
