Mitigation actions

Weingarten CHP Plant Modernization
Badenova has modernized the Weingarten combined heat and power plant by adding six new co-generation units, three heat pumps and three boilers. It heats 20,000 households and provides 16,000 with electricity. The new cogeneration units were installed in July 2012, and final modernization measures will be completed in November 2012. The saved CO2 emissions are be calculated by mid 2013. Since 2008, Badenova has published annual environment and sustainability reports. Start year 2012

“Eichelbuck” Landfill Site Solar Installation
Freiburg’s largest solar plant, occupying 17,900m², is located on the former Eichelbuck waste disposal site. The solar facility was initiated by the City of Freiburg and is run by ASF Solar GmbH und Co. KG, founded in early 2011. The company is an affiliate of Abfallwirtschaft und Stadtreinigung Freiburg (ASF), a waste management company, and Badenova, a local energy distributor. The solar plant has a total output capacity of 2.57 MWp (megawatt peak) and meets the energy demands of 1000 Freiburg households/ year, enabling approximately 2000 metric tons/year of carbon emissions savings. Start year 2012

Binzengrün 9 High-Rise Passive Energy Retrofit
This energy retrofit is one of three such climate-protection projects undertaken by Freiburger Stadtbau GmbH in Weingarten. The old balconies of the 1960s-era building have been enclosed to reduce thermal bridges. An overall thermal cover surrounds the building. Furthermore, triple glazing and controlled-heat recovery ventilation systems will support superior energy efficiency and simultaneously provide ideal comfort to occupants. Total energy consumption has been cut by approximately 78%. The building is heated by a nearby gas-fired co-generation power station. Start year 2011

Adaptation actions

Facility Management Office Adaptation Measures for Municipal Building Management.
During recent sports facility renovations, for example, earth collectors have been retrofitted so that fresh air required in summer can be cooled and used for ventilation at 8°C below outside temperatures, a significant improvement to building insulation that helps prevent or minimize overheating. Additionally, the earth collector can pre-heat outdoor air in winter and help save even more energy. Start year 2012
