Inauguration of the Energy Bunker in Hamburg

After six years of planning and building, the Second World War bunker which will deliver district heat to a district of Hamburg thanks to a combination of solar thermal collectors, large heat storage and other environmentally friendly energies has been inaugurated in March 2013 for the International Building Exhibition IBA.

The Second World War bunker has found a second use and has been turned into an ecological heating plant that will provide heat to 4000 households in Hamburg with district heat. The solar plant of 1350 m² of evacuated tube collectors from Ritter XL Solar is the biggest evacuated tube collector plant in Germany at the moment.


 

In Denmark renewable district heating and especially solar district heating is already spreading really fast. The same good experience is awaited in Hamburg, which could become an example for many other cities in Germany and Europe.
