Fact sheet Company: ILUNION Sociosanitario (Healthcare) Location: Madrid (Spain) Benefits 25 tCO2 emission reduction per year from the EVs and 15 tCO2 emission reduction from the LPG vehicles Sustainable Mobility project ILUNION is a unique…
In the municipality of Galapagar, an area of 36 km² with a population of 32,930 inhabitants, Madrid’s most sustainable Town Hall was built. The design and installation of a geothermal heat pump system provides high energy efficiency at a lower cost than conventional heating or cooling systems. The commercial area attached to the town hall…
In order to find alternative uses for a mining site that needed to be closed, Grupo Hunosa partnered with the University of Oviedo to study the feasibility of using the 350-meter flooded well as an alternative energy source. Last year, they inaugurated a 2 MW geothermal power plant that will supply heat to public facilities as well as two private communities, providing up to 2,880 MWh/year.
Under the framework of the Investor Confidence Project, the waste heat of two fast cooling plants are used (by means of heat exchangers in the hot gas tube with partially condensation) to support the heating demand of three ventilation systems located in the immediate vicinity in the engineering room at the top floor of the facility.
The case of the Palazzo della Farnesina highlights the importance of renovating historical buildings and the willingness of Public Administrations to set an example in how to do so while preserving the construction.
Several bioenergy villages with combined biomass and solar heat supply are being realized in Germany. We look at the example of Hallerndorf in Bavaria, Germany.
