Waste Heat

Harnessing renewable energy in the form of waste-heat, reusing water from the built environment for reuse in different contexts.

location-pilon Berlin, Germany

PILOT ACTIVITY

Waste heat is a renewable energy source which is not utilised to its full potential. The Berlin Pilot will re-channel waste heat from the built environment into the urban metabolic system,  and couple it efficiently with complimentary water sources to reuse in different contexts.

SHORT TERM

The Berlin Pilot will create a waste-heat database that reflects its potential to citizens, public institutions and companies. This will be a co-created initiative which is launched at the neighbourhood scale.

LONG TERM

Waste Heat is aiming to represent Berlin as the European pioneer for data-driven usage and recycling of waste heat.

THE CHALLENGE

The Berlin Pilot aims to explore how to reuse water in the form of waste-heat from industrial processes in the urban metabolism system. This will be done by mapping waste heat water data and the potential for productive activities (e.g. urban farming), developing a neighbourhood urban production hub, and creating a sustainable business model.
