On the edge of Berlin but in the heart of the urban energy transition
In the countryside, the birds are singing and the sun is shining on the lake. Here on Fürstenwalder Allee on the outskirts of Berlin, the urban energy transition is mentioned only in passing. However, one of the most respected district energy solutions in Germany is being created. The residential complex built on an area of two and a half football pitches 216 apartments, excellent transport links to the capital will offer more than clean air and a green environment.
High efficiency project with LowEx
Residents use energy from the roof that is generated by a LowEx network, which supplies a cogeneration plant with a capacity of 100 kWel and an SL boiler.
The cogeneration plant is heated at low temperature and the heating cable is switched off in summer so energy is not lost unnecessarily.
As well as the combined heat and power plant, the project already has climate-neutral infrastructure. Neither the building nor the distribution grids need to be converted for low system temperatures.
One rented apartment, all benefits included
This efficient energy solution for sustainable districts here in Berlin, with a three-story staggered construction, not only brings many architectural and social advantages under one roof.
The apartments have balconies so tenants can enjoy the lake view, they can take advantage of an on-site daycare centre, as well as benefit from inclusive electricity and their own decentralized heat supply.
The Fürstenwalde Seewinkel impressively shows that sustainable housing and development, innovation and social compatibility can be at the centre of equality on the outskirts of Berlin.
