A flagship project when it comes to self-generating, storing and utilising energy is the DMG MORI Global Headquarters in Winterthur, Switzerland. The project was instigated by the energy efficiency program from the DMG MORI group, the parent company of GILDEMEISTER energy solutions, with the objective to reduce energy costs across the entire company by 30 per cent. Alongside efforts to improve energy efficiency, the integration of renewable energy sources was amajor consideration to increase the building’s self-sufficiency level and to create long-term savings.
With 42 solar tracking systems of the Sun-Carrier brand,Winterthur is now home to an impressive energy park. The systems can yield up to 40 per cent more energy compared to fixed photovoltaic systems, which enables a better spread of the energy yield throughout the day.
