Integrated District Planning / Open District Hub

Our Competence Centre for Integrated District Planning researches the development and application of tools for planning and monitoring the energy supply of neighbourhoods, taking into account sector coupling and decarbonisation. We work in the area of providing decision-making aids for the expansion, conversion or new construction of supply infrastructures in neighbourhoods in conceptual and case studies. We support planners and developers of neighbourhoods with potential analyses for the use of renewable energies in the neighbourhood and the development of methods for the expansion and transformation of a neighbourhood supply with renewable energies. We also develop individualised approaches for the innovative use of flexibility options in neighbourhoods.
