Excursions on Friday 11th

 

pixabay_Bergedorf_B4F2 – Energetic urban renewal in south Bergedorf

The success of the energy revolution depends on various factors. The energy from renewable resources must be accompanied by an increase in energy efficiency. The energy efficiency of individual buildings is just as important as the creation and implementation of concepts at a higher neighborhood level. Only in this way the overall context can be recognized and taken into account and existing potential used as efficiently as possible. An energetic restructuring plan was drawn up in 2013 in Bergedorf, a district of Hamburg, and its implementation has been ongoing since 2014. In addition to several minor measures some bigger „flagship projects“ have been carried out, which will significantly reduce the area’s total energy consumption.

Start: Fri. 11.03., 10:00h

Duration: approx. 2,5-3h (including 45 min. journey)

 

F3 – Large-Scale Energy Production and Material Research in Geesthacht

This tour takes us to Geesthacht, a city in the metropolitan area of Hamburg, where we will visit the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, a centre for materials and coastal research, as well as the Energy Park Geesthacht.

F4_BIQThe research of the Helmholtz-Zentrum is focusing on material research, especially the development and testing of advanced engineering and lightweight materials like membranes for a range of applications, including fuel cell or façade technology. Results of the institutes’ research were e.g. installed in the International Building Exhibition IBA Hamburg’s so called smart material house „BIQ“ which is setting new standards as the first building in the world to have a bioreactor façade. Microalgae are cultivated in the glass elements that make up its “bio skin”. These are used to produce energy and can also control light and provide shade. We are looking forward to a quick insight into the institutes’ research.

Sustainability architecture tour_B6In the second part of the tour we will visit the Energy Park Geesthacht. The heart of the energy park is the largest pumped-storage plant of northern Germany. By using local renewable energy produced out of sun and wind, water from the river Elbe is pumped over a distance of more than 600 meters into the 3.3 million cubic meters reservoir. The plant serves as an instant energy reserve and helps to compensate fluctuations in the energy demand of the city of Hamburg.
