Commercial properties

Nearly 1.7 million buildings in Germany are commercially used production buildings, office buildings, retail buildings, accommodations and (private) education buildings. Commercial properties play an exceedingly crucial role for the achievement of the climate goals. GETEC is dedicated to the complexity of the energy supply for commercially used properties and cooperates with the development of solutions for boosting the energy efficiency. Energy service contracting is one recommended example of a possible external financing model for energy efficiency measures. It offers the advantage of financing without equity capital and, where applicable, an immediate or at least medium-term relief thanks to the reduction of current expenses for energy. The gathering of in-house expertise to oversee the modernisation project is not needed. Risks can be partly outsourced.

“Piraten Meer (Pirate Cove)” North Sea water park in Büsum

The adventure water park “Piraten Meer (Pirate Cove)” and the visitors and event centre in the North Sea spa town of Büsum have been supplied in an efficient and environmentally friendly way with electricity and heat since early 2013.


The customised GETEC energy solution

The challenge

Development and realisation of a new and modern energy concept with a high proportion of green power and high energy efficiency for the visitors and event centre and for the “Pirate Cove”.

The goal

Up to 70 percent of the heat required for the visitors and event centre as well as the “Pirate Cove” are to be covered with green heat. Moreover, the extracted electrical energy is to be fed into the public power grid as green electricity. This considerable improvement of the CO2 footprint enables Büsum to continue positioning itself as a climate-friendly holiday destination on the North Sea coast.

Our solution

GETEC installed a high-efficiency CHP unit, which supplies heat and electricity to the spa centre of Büsum in a climate neutral fashion by means of combined heat and power generated from green gas (biomethane in natural gas quality). The generated electricity is fed into the power grid. In January 2013 the new energy supply plant was commissioned after only three months of construction. The following work was carried out: Placement of the CHP unit in the area of the old sanitary facilities, set-up of a local heating pipeline for the supply of the visitors and event centre, hydraulic incorporation of the CHP unit into the boiler systems, backfitting of a buffer storage and modification of the EI&C technology.

a-ja Resort Grömitz

a-ja, a subsidiary of DSR Hotel Holding, is a new, up-and-coming, rapidly expanding holiday hotel brand. Its aspiration: Best holidays at the best price – hotel and spa for everyone. The a-ja concept represents a democratisation of luxury in the holiday hotel industry, featuring the components adventure gastronomy, generous spa offerings and the ambience of a suite.


The customised GETEC energy solution

The challenge

Set-up of a new CHP unit on the main floor of the a-ja resort Grömitz and hydraulic connection with the district heating network by way of a hybrid station. The strict requirements regarding the permissible noise emission of the Baltic Sea spa town of Grömitz as well as the hotel proper represented a particular challenge, which was considered early on in the planning of the unit.

The goal

In the context of the further expansion of the a-ja brand, a new a-ja resort was completed in Grömitz in 2015, which was connected to the district heating network. An invitation to tender for the construction of an appropriate CHP unit was additionally launched, among other things, for the purpose of generating electricity in-house. 

Our solution

GETEC built a CHP unit with a capacity of 140 kWel using natural gas as fuel base in the building of the a-ja resort of Grömitz.
All of the thermal energy is fed into the upstream district heating network.
