Explanatory film: Energetic urban redevelopment

Exploit potential at neighbourhood level!

The KfW programme "Energy-efficient urban refurbishment" promotes integrated energy-efficient neighbourhood concepts and refurbishment management with programme part 432. Programme parts 201 and 202 provide investment support for cross-building and infrastructural supply systems. The Federal Ministry of the Interior, for Building and the Home Affairs provides the funding for the energy refurbishment process from the individual building to the neighbourhood from the Energy and Climate Fund (EKF).

30 Years DASL Special Award for the French Quarter in Tübingen

The Special price on the topic "Urban development revisited: Prices - Practice - Perspectives" was given to the project Urban development area Stuttgarter Straße, French Quarter in Tübingen. The special prize, which is awarded in parallel to the urban development prize, serves to highlight particularly urgent fields of action in urban development and urban planning. It was awarded on 23.4.2021 on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the German Urban Development Prize to contributions that had already been recognised with prizes and awards between 1980 and 2010. The judging of the special prize was very complex, as it had to cover a span of 30 years, i.e. a generation, of the achievements of German urban development that were considered outstanding at the time, and, in retrospect, it had to be based on robust, objective criteria that could adequately reflect the complexity of 30 years of urban development history and 30 years of urban development models.

German Urban Development Award 2020 goes toBerlin

The prize is awarded every two years by the German Academy for Urban Development and Regional Planning (DASL) with significant support from the Wüstenrot Foundation. Urban Development Award in the DSP 2020 competition goes to the project Quarter at the former Blumengroßmark in Berlin. With 81 applications, a particularly large number of projects were submitted for the Urban Design Award. The spectrum was very broad: urban-structural-geographical, thematic, structural-spatial. From the new town hall in the urban planning context of a small municipality to the large conversion project of a metropolitan region, the interdisciplinary jury (urban planning, architecture, open space planning, preservation of historical monuments, economics, sociology) was faced with a very difficult decision in many cases.

BR-Reportage (44 min., 2021) "With timber construction out of the climate crisis?"

Online until 19.01.2026

In the video contribution, among other things, the Munich timber housing estate "Prince Eugene Park" and the City of Wood in Bad Aibling.

"Drought and bark beetles are taking their toll on the forest. The resulting damaged wood has caused the price of wood to plummet. The local forest owners are making a loss, even though the beetle wood is exported thousands of kilometres to China and America as construction timber. What could be the solution to the timber crisis? And could more timber construction in our country also be a way out of the climate crisis?"

Lower Saxony passes climate protection law

On Wednesday, December 9, 2020, the Lower Saxony state parliament passed what Lower Saxony's Environment and Climate Protection Minister Olaf Lies called a "very important and groundbreaking" law: With the Lower Saxony Climate Act, the topic of climate protection is anchored in the state constitution, the state-wide energy demand is to be completely covered by renewable energies by 2040 and Lower Saxony commits to climate neutrality by 2050. Lies: "With this, we have a law that does justice to the importance of climate protection as the central social task for the coming years and decades. It sets an important course for the future. This is what this state government and the parliamentary groups that support it stand for - setting realistic goals that can also be implemented. We are setting standards and probably have the most ambitious climate law in the whole of Germany! We are consistently pursuing our goal of making Lower Saxony the No. 1 climate protection state. We are already the No. 1 energy state, and we will also achieve this in climate protection!"

Report (2020) about the first eco-settlement in Saarland

5:18 min, First broadcast: 11/19/2020, Available until 11/20/2021.
Wir im Saarland - The Magazine ∙ SR Television

"A quarter of a century ago, Bernd Janes looked for like-minded comrades-in-arms and founded an ecologically oriented housing estate on the outskirts of Kohlhof. At first, the new neighbors were eyed critically by the surrounding community. No wonder, because the houses were built in wood, four families shared one house and the gardens were not separated from each other by fences, but merged seamlessly into each other."

Berlin Brandenburg Innovation Award for the Lumenion high-temperature steel storage system for renewable energies

1:47 min, date: 11/27/2020

With the Innovation Award, the economic administrations of the two states of Berlin and Brandenburg annually honor innovative and outstanding work from the region. With the involvement of business enterprises and other institutions as private partners, the prize was and is also a prize of the economy for the economy. Since it was first awarded in 1984 (since 1992 jointly with Brandenburg), there have been more than 160 prize winners and over 4,000 applications. In 2020, the number of applications rose to 221, once again an increase over the previous year, despite more difficult conditions due to the Corona situation - a clear sign of the great innovative potential of the two states.

Lumenion GmbH: In order to generate sustainable renewable energy, the company developed the Lumenion storage system. It stores electricity as heat at 650°C. The stored thermal energy can then be used in a time-delayed and cost-effective manner as process heat for industry or as district heating.

Reportage of the city of Berlin "Resource-efficient building with concrete, gypsum, brick and wood".

Around 60 percent of the resources used in Berlin are processed in the construction industry. This contrasts with millions of tonnes of building rubble and construction site waste. Every year, 2.2 million tons of primary raw materials are already saved in civil engineering and building construction in Berlin through the use of quality-assured secondary raw materials. But Berlin does not intend to stop there. By 2030, a further 1.4 million tonnes of primary materials are to be replaced by secondary raw materials each year.

Video (2020) Federal Award for Environment & Building for the WIR quarter in Berlin

"The WIR neighbourhood in Berlin is not only characterised by its high energy efficiency (KfW 40 standard) and the use of wood as a renewable raw material for the building structure, but also by the collaborative planning process, which led to different housing concepts and the integration of different social communities. Common areas and community facilities such as a residents' workshop, swimming pool, neighbourhood square and daycare centre, facilitate a lively and diverse neighbourhood. This also includes a dementia residential community as well as sponsors for youth work and refugee groups. The five apartment buildings were built with a timber frame construction and the façade in timber panel construction. This created flexible floor plans that offer good conversion possibilities."
