On new energy paths
With an area of about 12,000 square meters, the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich is one of the largest collection houses for modern and contemporary art in Europe. However, the energy consumption of the building, which was only completed in 2002, was no longer up to date. For this reason, in 2011, the Free State of Bavaria signed an energy saving contracting agreement for the Pinakothek der Moderne with ENGIE Deutschland: Over a period of seven years, ENGIE Deutschland has reduced the energy consumption of the art museum, and thus also the CO2 emissions, by nearly 40 %. ENGIE Deutschland has carried out the necessary investments of 1.75 million euros as contractor.
The measures focus on the conversion and optimization of the technical building equipment and the installation of an energy management system. As one of the main measures to achieve the energy-saving targets, we used the waste heat from the refrigeration machines that the museum had previously discharged into the groundwater. For this purpose, the chillers were converted for heat pump operation.
The investments are refinanced exclusively by the energy costs saved over the contractually agreed period. The State of Bavaria benefits from reduced energy costs already during the contract period.
