Comprehensive Survey and Mapping

Published: 13/03/2014

For the City of Hamburg, Ecofys created an extensive study on the current heat demand of the city’s building stock and the connected energy supply system. In this study, the Hamburg residential building typology has been updated and expanded to include a typology for non-residential buildings. Numerous records were entered into a geographic information system (GIS) to determine the status and the development of specific energy values, modernization, renovation level, energy consumption, supply structure, etc. The results of the analyses do not only indicate the current status and needs, but is an important instrument for strategic planning of future heat supply and energy savings in buildings.
