  3. Zlín
  4. Neckarsulm

Energy in Minds! was realised over a period of five years in four European communities - Weiz-Gleisdorf (Austria), Falkenberg (Sweden), Zlín (Czech republic), and Neckarsulm (Germany). The project aimed to reduce the use of fossil energy and CO2 emissions in the building sector by 20 to 30% in the four communities within a five-year period. To reach this goal a wide range of measures were taken to reduce the energy consumption and increase the use of renewable energy.

To achieve these objectives Energy in Minds! focused on six key actions: making people more energy aware; increasing renewable energy sources; increasing rational use of energy; reducing demand; improving interaction; and dissemination and exploration.

Visualisation type: 

The following datasets is part of CONCERTO premium TMD and is provided as is. Note in certain cases the datasets are incomplete.

The values show the sum of New Buildings data + Refurbished Buildings data (including building integrated energy supply). The values do not contain data from Large Scale Energy Supply Units.

Weiz-Gleisdorf:

  • 17% reduction in energy consumption;
  • 2,525 m2 of solar thermal systems installed;
  • 91 kWp of PV systems installed;
  • 5,270 kW of biomass capacity installed (woodchips and pellets);
  • 12,581 m2 of building space retrofitted;
  •  9,305 m2 of new buildings built.

 
Zlin:

  • 28% reduction in energy consumption;
  • 380 m2 of solar thermal systems installed;
  • 276 kWp of PV systems installed;
  • 7,227 m2 of building space retrofitted;
  • 5,494 m2 of new buildings built.

Neckarsulm:

  • 25% reduction in energy consumption;
  • 1,040 m2 of solar thermal systems installed;
  • 1,331 kWp of PV systems installed;
  • 7,135 kW of biomass capacity installed (woodchips and pellets);
  • 7,132 m2 of building space retrofitted;
  • 2,117 m2 of new buildings built.

Falkenberg:

  • A 24% reduction in energy consumption;
  • 1,024 m2 of solar thermal systems installed;
  • 8,900 kW of biomass capacity installed (woodchips and pellets);
