The enlargement of the building also wants to be a demonstration project on sustainability. Before defining the optimal energy concept Ingenium has performed different energy and comfort simulations.
Based on these simulations a micro heat grid on high and low temperature has been chosen. Different energy consumers and producers are connected on this heat grid. For the electrical energy supply a similar smart micro grid will be installed.
The HVAC-installations on the first office floor contain a demand based natural ventilation system with heat recovery by a heat pump.
The heat production installations contain 4 different types of heat pumps (i.e. energy piles, boreholes, exhaust air, outside air). A micro-cogeneration will also be installed.
Ingenium is the engineering and consultancy company for the installations and the energy concept.
