Energy tours

Breakout session

Join us for 3 site visits organized on Wednesday 26 April 15.00 - 18.00

 

VISIT 1 - BUILDINGS

Renovated Energy Plus School

Fossil energy resources like oil and gas are dwindling. Countries around the world have set the goal of only operating climate-neutral buildings. In Stuttgart, schools make up approximately 40% of the building space of the municipality, 20% of the operating costs must be spent on their energy needs. In order to show the sleeping potential here, the city of Stuttgart has implemented the project "Uhlandschule becomes a plus-energy-school". The goal is to modernise the existing building of the Uhlandschule in order to become a plus-energy-school.

 

VISIT 2 - URBANISM

Stuttgart 21 Urban development around the new railways station

Stuttgart 21 is a railway and urban development project. The concept attempts to combine plans for high speed links from Stuttgart to other cities with the improvement of local infrastructure and replacement of the current terminal station. The current 17-track station is to be replaced by an underground 8-track through-station. Because the existing platforms and approach tracks will not be needed any more, the project has a big potential for urban development in the city centre. The excursion will take place at the building site and the "Turmforum", an exhibition around the project.

40 participants maximum
