Pilot projects: Laboratories for energy-efficient urban redevelopment


Deutschlandkarte mit Kennzeichnung der Pilot- und Stellvertreterstandorte vor dem Hintergrund der siedlungsstrukturellen Prägung


When the KfW Energy-efficient Urban Redevelopment Programme was launched in 2011, on the suggestion of the Länder 63 pilot projects across the country began developing integrated neighbourhood strategies for energy efficiency. The experience these municipalities gained in energy-efficient urban redevelopment is extremely useful both for updating the programme itself and in terms of its practical value to other municipalities.

The 63 projects studied by the programme-related research are distributed throughout Germany in cities and towns of different sizes. They cover a range of neighbourhood types and buildings from different periods. Historical town centres, housing estates dating from the 1950s to 1980s and heterogeneous neighbourhoods are all represented.

Below are further details on the pilot projects. Click on the selection fields to search for projects being implemented in a specific Land, or focusing on particular issues or neighbourhood types.

Twelve representative projects were selected from the pilots for in-depth study. They reflect the entire spectrum of neighbourhoods and approaches.
