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: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
