DBU model project EnWoKom: Energy efficiency and the housing industry - Testing of environmental communication concepts for an energy efficient behaviour of residents in existing housing complexes in Erfurt and Kassel

As a point of contact for residents and a potential cooperation partner, housing companies play an important role in implementing climate change objectives on a local level. In addition to technological innovations, energy savings and increasing energy efficiency, the energy consumption behaviour of private households is one of the determining factors in the energy transition.

In collaboration with two housing companies participating in the pilot project, methods of information and participation are to be tested und further developed, with a view to contributing to a more energy efficient behaviour of residents. As a result, successful strategies will be developed to strengthen energy efficient and sustainable behaviour as well as significantly improve the carbon footprint of the residents within the pilot neighbourhoods. Furthermore, recommendations regarding the development of communication processes and strategies for implementing the energy transition will be provided for the housing industry and local administrations.

Energy Efficiency and Comfort of Living in Prefab Buildings (EnWoPla)

In cooperation with the housing cooperative “WbG Erfurt eG”, residents, and further participants, the ISP established a model apartment to consult and motivate residents about energy efficient housing as part of the earlier research project “Energy Efficiency and Housing Industry” (EnWoKom).
The project “Energy Efficiency and Comfort of Living in Prefab Buildings” (EnWoPla) expands this approach by making the model apartment movable and by widening the consulting methods regarding energy efficient behaviour of residents. Between August 2016 and December 2017, the apartment, supported by IKEA Foundation, was put up in the neighbourhood “Berliner Platz” in the city of Erfurt.

Sharing Economy - Models of sustainable consumption in the housing industry (KoSeWo)

The research project focuses on potentials and future trends of collaborative innovation processes in the housing industry in terms of sustainable consumption patterns in residential areas. This is related to current housing policy debates about more affordable housing. The contribution of models of sustainable consumption for low-income households will therefore be given particular attention. The main objectives of this research project are:

  • Surveying and classifying existing models of sustainable, collaborative consumption in the housing industry
  • Determining and appraising the possible potential of a future implementation of sustainable consumption models in the housing industry
  • Identifying opportunities, threats and effects of promoting collaborative consumption in the housing industry
  • Identifying potentials and conflicts between models of collaborative consumption and the supply of affordable housing

The research aims to provide recommendations for the housing industry and an outlook on the future development of this topic.

WASta - Housing for Elderly People in the Context of Urban Development (BMBF)

The diversification of society currently taking place due to ongoing demographic change implies modified demands on housing. In this context, the housing industry is challenged to meet the diversified demand of different lifestyle groups among senior citizens. In order to stay competitive in an ageng society, building companies and all other enterprises will have to adapt and react to the changed demand. It will be of particular importance to address the demand of the growing elderly population. In this research project, we aimed to analyse and systemise the diverse group of the elderly.

Study "Developing Inner Cities - Consulting Services for a Revitalisation of Waste Land and Vacant Buildings" (TMBWK)

Due to shrinking population figures, many inner cities in Germany are struggling with increasing vacancy of buildings. For the same reason wasteland is not redeveloped. Due to suburbanisation, economic structural transformation and a decline in the birth rate, urban development is stagnating; many towns face the need for urban revitalisation. In this context, the study analysed the potential of consulting services to contribute to the revitalisation of inner cities.

Establishment of a community centre in the "Roter Berg" neighbourhood of Erfurt as part of the research programme Experimental Housing and Urban Development (ExWoSt, BBSR)

As part of the research programme Experimental Housing and Urban Development (ExWoSt) of the Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning (BBR), the City of Erfurt built a new integrative neighbourhood centre in the urban quarter “Roter Berg”. The project was one of nine model projects within the exploratory focus "Innovationen für familien- und altengerechte Stadtquartiere" ("Innovations for Urban Neighbourhoods Suitable for Families and the Elderly") focusing on community facilities in urban neighbourhoods. The research programme intended to improve the attractiveness of urban neighbourhoods, particularly for young families and older inhabitants, and to stabilise structurally weak neighbourhoods by supporting and testing innovative planning approaches. The evaluation of the results will be transferred to future urban planning policy. The new neighbourhood centre in the quarter “Roter Berg” was established in an untenanted part of the public secondary school No. 25. Apart from reusing unused premises, the project intended to (re-)vitalise social and cultural activities in the neighbourhood, to support existing social networks and to encourage community building between young and old. The concept was implemented within five modules: (1) cooperation and reports, (2) participatory planning, (3) expertise (4) establishing a network for civic activation and participation (5) conducting structural measures for the implementation of the basic concept.

Communication of cost transparency for housing choice - Transparency on costs and benefits for sustainable housing choices through an innovative communication strategy in Central Thuringia (BMBF)

BMBF-Projekt KomKoWo

The research project was part of the national programme REFINA conducted by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The goal of the project was to develop a communication strategy to support a sustainable choice of housing location considering the costs involved. In this context, an innovative communication strategy consisting of real and virtual communicational components raised the awareness of land consumption. Decision guidelines revealing the costs of housing were developed addressing households looking for a new home. The presentation of costs includes original outlay but also running expenses. Furthermore, municipal and regional planning authorities were sensitised to the problem of current costs for housing areas. The approach of the research project was site-related and focused on the target groups mentioned. Costs of mobility, current costs of infrastructure and costs for adjustments are examples of determining parameters for the decision-making process. The decision guidelines aim to encourage sustainable and considered decisions on the location of housing.
