The neighborhoods are part of a scheme to decarbonise Vonovia estates with adjacent buildings and households capable of being supplied with at least 60% carbon-free heating on a self-sufficient basis.
To achieve this, the implementation of electrolysers will support the production of hydrogen from electric power as well as the inclusion of fuel cells and heat pumps.
