Title: Eco-Housing Area Rosenau
The main idea of the project was to operate the energy supply of public, non-profit dwelling constructions on energy-efficient, ecological, sustainable and economical criteria. An extensive energy-efficient heating system was installed. Therefore the energy supply of the eco-housing area Rosenau (164 accommodation units) is delivered without emissions and supports the Kyoto Accord. With little effort it is possible to use the pipe heating system on hot summer days as a cooling facility. The combination of heat pumps and the thermal solar facility with an optimized heat distributing system provides for energy efficiency, climate protection, sustainability and low operating costs.
