Working on behalf of the Neugut Housing Cooperative, the EBP team examined different approaches to achieving a carbon-neutral heating system for three of the cooperative’s multi-family homes (MFHs). We then assessed the proposed solutions, which were also to account for drinking water heating systems, in terms of economic and ecological criteria. Once a decision was made in favor of installing a brine/water heat pump, we simulated the arrangement of the geothermal probes, drafted the specifications, evaluated the bids submitted by the subcontractors, and oversaw the proper installation of the new system.
- Feasibility study and assessment of various heating/hot (drinking) water options with an eye to economic and ecological sustainability
- Provision of technical support for all decision making
- Consultation concerning possible photovoltaic installation
- Drafting of a layout for the main components of the selected brine/water heat pump, including simulation of geothermal probe installation
- Execution of a call to tender (drafting of specifications, comparison of bids, and final negotiations)
- Oversight of system installation to ensure the specified quality
