Innovative local heating solution in Ludwigsburg

21.05.2015

Holistic concept for a new housing estate and redevelopment area

Consolidating heating networks in existing urban districts while also connecting areas with a low heat density is particularly ambitious from an economic point of view. The town of Ludwigsburg is taking exactly this route.


The new-build schemes in the Sonnenberg urban district consist of a variety of different building types.

Here, an existing heating network is being expanded and in future will supply both the district of Sonnenberg and the Grünbühl housing estate, which is badly in need of refurbishment.

The BINE-Projektinfo brochure entitled “Local heating network combines new-build schemes with existing district” (04/2015) presents the district energy concept with its two components – energy-optimised construction and efficient heating provision.

Based on the example of Ludwigsburg, methods and tools have been developed and tested that can be transferred to other cities with a comparable structure.

Because the existing building fabric in Grünbühl is partially in a poor condition, it makes economic sense to demolish part of the houses and successively construct new buildings. Both urban districts in future will have a juxtaposition of refurbished existing buildings and energy-efficient new buildings with different construction standards.

The low building density in conjunction with the low heating requirement has made it more difficult to plan the heating network in parts of Sonnenberg. The most favourable option proved to be to keep the supply temperature in the network low and to only increase it on-site to the level required for space and domestic hot water heating. Since only a small temperature change has to be made, the electricity consumption remains low.

The base load for the heat supply is secured by a brine/water heat pump, with a borehole heat exchanger array totalling nearly 6 km in length, and a CHP plant.

A gas boiler covers the peak load. This research project is a collaboration between Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences, the town of Ludwigsburg and the Stadtwerke Ludwigsburg-Kornwestheim municipal utility company. The project forms a component of the town’s integrated urban development concept.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
