Interconnected energy by district

Interconnected energy by district aims to introduces model projects that contribute to achieving Berlin’s self-imposed climate targets to the expert public.

Solutions for the energy transition

Many individual projects have already developed innovative solutions for the city, but they have remained island solutions or have not been widely publicised. 

But the city can only benefit from the effects if individual solutions are implemented on a district-by-district basis and the citywide rollout receives support.

Digital tools are important for energetically networked quarters and urban development, the involvement of science, research and the public sector as well as the support of the important contributions from citizen projects.
House A and House B are physically connected and networked with each other via data interfaces in order to manage the exchange of energy. If house A generates more energy than is needed, e.g. via the PV system or the combined heat and power plant, house B can store this in a battery and use it later if necessary or return it to house A.

To facilitate the scaling up required, Technologiestiftung Berlin provides a platform for exchange and interconnection to selected experts in the fields of research and development, energy and environmental technology, public utility and supply companies – and last but not least, the players in Berlin affiliated with housing associations and urban development.
