The City

“Founded as the settlement Lipzk (Place by the Linden (lat. tilia)) around 900 A.D. by Slavs, Leipzig today is a dynamic city of 500,000 and home to Tilia.”

Develop and transform district heating, cogeneration, methanisation and distributed energy projects

We believe that district heating is central to many optimization approaches in the energy sector – energy recovery and exchange, use of local energy resources: we jointly transform the energy production and the usage.

A few examples:

  • Transformation of a middle-size city district heating system leading to the setting up and investment in a cogeneration with a digester fed by local agricultural waste. 30% reduction of the heating price and 40% reduction of CO2 emissions. 25% return on public investment.
  • Complete energy utility upgrade of a high tech industrial equipment manufacturer, resulting among other improvements in the installation of a trigeneration supplying the entire industrial site, with Tilia as a co-financing partner. Tilia also provides a long term assistance to the operation of the facility.
  • Project management support (7 years) for a large scale public development cooperation piloting low-carbon heating and cold networks, powered by geothermal sources, serving a range of university and research institutions campuses and housing with high energy performance in "smart grid" multi-energy networkk optimization framework.

 

Good Ideas.
