How can we save the planet? what technologies help us to save energy in our everyday lives?
Umwelt Arena as a futuristically designed building helps visitors to experience and understand sustainability.
The building was opened on 23.08.2012 and is an exhibition platform for topics of sustainability in the areas of nature and life, energy and mobility, construction and modernization as well as renewable energy. By experiencing, understanding and comparing complex issues, the family-friendly environment arena will make both experts and laymen understand the connections between environmentally friendly products and their technology.
With the goal of showing visitors modern environmental technologies in all their diversity, a broad repertoire is used in the building technology. For example, six different types of heat pumps were installed in the building. Various combined heat and power systems, including the ecoPOWER 1.0 micro-CHP from Vaillant, as well as one woodchip and one pellet heating system, round out the range of heat producers. The heat is distributed by two systems. Concrete core cooling in the ceilings is used for heating and cooling in the base load. In addition, the supply air is pre-heated in case of low outdoor temperatures. The hot water is supplied by a solar thermal system. The photovoltaic system integrated into the roof generates around 540,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, therefore guaranteeing the goal of a “plus energy house”. ——***——-
