Exploring SmartQuart – a model of sustainable living
We are delighted to share with you the outstanding experience of our Summer School Energy Performance of Buildings and Districts students during their recent visit to SmartQuart. Led by Dr. Arndt Brauckmann and Uwe Dietze, the tour took us through three incredible stops in the region.
All of these stations are part of the City Quarter Projects, an initiative to make green living a reality. The project's support from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, RWTH Aachen University, Forschungszentrum Jülich, E.ON and other companies is a testament to the importance and impact of sustainable living.
During our visit, the students got an exclusive look at various phases of the projects and had the opportunity to observe the control rooms, providing valuable insights into the cutting-edge technologies being used.
In conclusion, our visit to SmartQuart left us energized and hopeful for a greener future. We would like to thank everyone involved in making this visionary project a reality. Let's continue to work together and embrace sustainable solutions to create a brighter, cleaner tomorrow!
