Future heating supply designed

Over the past thirty years, the population of Duisburg has fallen by more than a fifth, and the heating requirement has also reduced. A team of experts has investigated how the municipal utility company can adapt the heating supply in accordance with these developments by 2050. A main recommendation: The interconnection of two district heating networks would increase the primary energy efficiency and cut costs, mainly because industrial waste heat could be better utilised.

In addition to the socially widely discussed educational approaches, an essential aspect of state-of-the-art schools also includes the provision of buildings with a higher user quality. Given the drop in pupil numbers, this is mainly concerned with the structural and energy-efficient retrofitting of existing buildings rather than with new-buildings.  more...

Schoolchildren are saving energy

At many schools they already exist: schoolchildren as energy detectives, energy managers or energy teams. They track down energy leaks, take the initiative, assume responsibility and ultimately know a great deal about saving energy. Their commitment is often also financially rewarding for their school.  more...
