A set of interventions is planned for increasing the energy efficiency in the Tepebasi district.
In the area of Building Renovation, “Near-passive” buildings will be targeted by the interventions at the demo-site.
The most important component of the energy category interventions will be heating/cooling energy saving implementations on the building envelope via strong insulation of exterior walls, triple glazing in window units, pipe and attic insulation, etc.
A Central district heating/cooling and hot water system, bringing significant energy saving, will be realized: this consists of a biomass central heating plant and a 300 kW water sourced heat pump working along with 4 wells to produce sufficient heat for the demo-site.
Cooling will be supplied by heat pump and 300 kW heat recovery heat pump, which will also aid the DHW generation from rejected heat of system. 27 kWt solar collectors will supply the base load of DHW demand. All systems work in sequence.
All lighting within buildings and street lighting in the district will be turned to low energy LED lighting with smart applications.
An approximately 150 kWp PV system will generate around 70% of the power needs of the demo-site. The PV system consists of a 100 kWp rooftop BIPV installation, on the custom-made roof of the social centre, in addition to 50 kWp tracker systems on ground.
Critical loads in the demo-site will be served via battery storage that will be housed in the same building as the central heating plant.
