Green Industy Park

Industry Park North

In February 2014, the "Green Industry Park Freiburg" (GIP) initiative was launched in Freiburg's largest and oldest industrial area by the city of Freiburg, the municipal business development agency Freiburg Wirtschaft Touristik und Messe (FWTM), the regional energy service provider badenova and the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE). Together with local companies, a future-oriented, sustainable, energy- and resource-efficient industrial area with a nationwide model character and its own "brand" is being developed with which companies can identify.

Cimate Protection Concept

The first step on the way to a green industrial area and the climate protection sub-concept was a data collection from the local companies as well as several workshops to get an overview of the energy flows. In a second step, it was checked whether these energy flows could be optimized. For example, the excess waste heat from a neighboring company could heat a hall. The result of the data is a catalog of measures, which shows which measures could be taken where and with which priority. This includes both an analysis of the existing energy infrastructure and the development of suitable climate protection measures as well as the networking of existing and the start-up of new, innovative projects. You can download the partial climate protection concept here.
