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.
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.

About BINE Information Service
Energy research for practical applications
The BINE Information Service reports on energy research topics, such as new materials, systems and components, as well as innovative concepts and methods. The knowledge gained is incorporated into the implementation of new technologies in practice, because first-rate information provides a basis for pioneering decisions, whether in the planning of energy-optimised buildings, increasing the efficiency of industrial processes, or integrating renewable energy sources into existing systems.

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The Atlantic overturning – one of Earth’s most important heat transport systems, pumping warm water northwards and cold water southwards – is weaker today than any time before in more than 1000 years. Sea surface temperature data analysis provides new evidence that this major ocean circulation has slowed down by roughly 15 percent since the middle of the 20th century, according to a study published in the highly renowned journal Nature by an international team of scientists. Human-made climate change is a prime suspect for these worrying observations.
