The rapid development of the Kirchberg plateau, Luxembourg's new quarter which is today home to various administrative and tertiary centres, has created a need for careful planning of both energy supply and urban development, particularly in terms of heating, cooling and power requirements.
The companies Paul Wurth, Luxconsult, Omnitec and Stadtwerke Saarbrücken have joined forces to set up a working group, which will conduct a feasibility and profitability study for the construction and operation of a stand-alone energy system for the Kirchberg plateau.
The analysis and calculations have shown that the construction of decentralised cogeneration plants, adapted to the needs of buildings or blocks, is the best solution from a financial and technical point of view. Based on these positive findings, a decision was taken to form a new company in order to promote cogeneration in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
