Development of future-oriented energy technologies and the sustainable transformation of the energy supply of a city quarter in the city of Heide, Dithmarschen district. Efficient electricity, heat and fuel supply are to be developed in the Rüsdorfer Kamp district. The goal is the most complete exploitation of renewable energies and in particular the use of the shares of wind energy, which are regulated due to network bottlenecks and lack of flexibility in the system and thus lost.

Project Description:

The research project, classified as a flagship project, is now being promoted as one of six demonstration objects. Here, a 20-acre district with primarily multi-storey housing from the 1950s to 1960s to gain sustainable appeal. The focus is on the implementation of our own energy production and supply within the district, which takes into account both centralized and decentralized renewable energy sources. These include heat and electricity, as well as mobility. Any surplus electricity should be collected electrochemically in central battery storage systems as well as in gas storage facilities. In order to be able to ensure supply overall, even in extreme situations and in the event of incidents, the energy systems must be resilient, that is, resistant. At the same time, the quarter should have a stabilizing effect on the energy system as a whole. This results in the specific scientific question of the University of Bremen.


Hybrid solutions for individual and public transport will also be tested. For this purpose, a "gas station of the future" is to be developed, an idea that is being driven forward by the project partner Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW). The renewable hydrogen, methane and electricity are offered as alternative sources of power for vehicles. All in all, the keyword "energy efficient city" is about testing new technologies on a large scale. The model should ultimately be transferable to other cities and regions nationwide.
