100% of our electricity is generated from renewable energy sources

We generate 800.000 kWh/year with photovoltaic systems on the campus

Internal budgeting of energy costs

We create a high incentive to save electrical und thermal energy for the different organisational units by using an internal budgeting system for energy costs. Every unit can monitor and manage its energy use and costs with the help of an energy web system. An energy consultant provides support for maximizing individual potentials.

Cogeneration unit

TU Braunschweig operates a  cogeneration unit that has an efficiency rate of about 90%. The production is approximately 320.000 kWh of electrical and 540.000 kWh of thermal energy per year.
