|Name project||Solar Energy Housing Estate Köln-Bocklemünd (II)|
|Year||2001-10-01 (Start operation date)|
|PV application||Façade - integrated other|
|PV power total||9.3 kWp|
|Location||Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia|
|Summary||The refurbishment of the 92 dwellings was part of „50 solar energy housing estates in NRW“. Köln-Bocklemünd was turned into one of the first energy efficient housing estates in the framework of the programme subsidised by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
Due to implemented measures like additional insulation the heating demand could have been reduced more than 50 percent.
Additionally a solar thermal system placed on the roof of the building supplies 30 % of the demand for domestic hot water.
Further power is generated by a PV system (9,3 kWp) with coloured solar cells integrated into the facade.|
