Rebound effects following refurbishment – Scientific monitoring of the Karlsruhe-Rintheim neighbourhood concept

As part of the "Energy efficient Rintheim" neighbourhood concept, various refurbishment alternatives were analysed for residential construction using detailed simulation models and comprehensive recording of measurement data. Initial evaluations of the instigated monitoring programme show that the calculations have overestimated the possible saving effects.

Integrated Neighbourhood Energy Concept, Karlsruhe-Rintheim

Based on a neighbourhood energy concept, a local heating network – supplied by a cogeneration system and industrial waste heat - was set up to renovate the buildings for maximum economic effect. Subsequent operation is monitored continuously. In addition to innovations in building conceptual design, building services equipment, measurement and control technology as well as tenant communication, this project will be the first to implement a low-ex approach for an entire neighbourhood.
