District development with 100 % regenerative energy
How can we make sure that we reach our ambitious climate goals within the time we have left to make a significant impact? The question is a global one, but the answer, as so often, can be found locally. We have to change the very fundamentals of our lifestyles. We must rethink and change the way we use electricity, heat and cool our homes and how we move around in our neighbourhood, get to work and run our errands.
Many regions in Germany already boast an oversupply of renewable energy. Nonetheless, it is not trickling down into everyday lives, because we haven’t thought through how to store, transform and intelligently distribute and deliver this energy to our neighbourhoods and communities.
This is exactly where the objectives of the QUARREE100 project come in. We will offer an efficient, integrated energy system for a city quarter, that delivers 100 % renewable power, heat and mobility solution. The system will be built on local wind and solar PV generation and provide lots of opportunities for participation. It will be a cellular system that delivers system benefits to the distribution and transmission networks as well as provide business opportunities to the region and affordable green energy for the people living in the city quarter.
