BSR.005 — Self-sufficient district heating (0.96 MW) and district cooling (0.83 MW) as the energy concept of the future

2021-6-7

Initial situation

A future-oriented energy concept has been installed on the former Opel site Mark 51°7. For the first time, an area of 70 hectares in size is supplied with heating and cooling obtained using geothermal energy.

∙ Low primary energy factor below 0.5 through use of geothermal energy for heating and cooling supply.
∙ Feeding of surplus energy into the local FW grid by the companies.

Various users such as RUB ZESS and also DHL are attached to the total area of the former Opel site.

The Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB) operates the research center ZESS here with a building size of about 20,000 m2. In the Research Center for the Engineering of Smarter Product-Service Systems, scientists work on issues related to Industry 4.0.
