Title: Plus power production facility

Beginning of 2008, a 13,500 square meters of production building was purchased, where the entire heat demand of the building over the use of existing heat loads will be covered. 91% energy savings to today's conventional construction. In addition, generated by a photovoltaic system more energy as the heating, ventilation and air conditioning needs for the entire building. Thus is achieved by building an energy surplus.
The planning approach was a holistic view of future use (which is made in the building), is often only the building envelope and the planned future use as Waste heat potential is not taken into account. Waste heat is stored in Sprinklerbecken to increase fuel efficiency and the heat pump to cool, direct use of waste heat for logistics areas.
