MAtchUP: renewable energy in Dresden – Episode 1


Hello! Did you know, that Dresden is one of Europe’s leading cities on the subject sustainable urban development? With our great technological expertise we are an example to other cities DREWAG is part of the MAtchUP project Together with strong partners we want to create a “smart city” that is “Ready for Climate Change” Dresden and the Cities of Valencia and Antalya are a so-called lighthouse cities at MAtchUP. We as DREWAG are proud of this project. Our project area is Dresden-Johannstadt. There we are developing different aspects of a smart city: For tenants and housing industry there are new services in Photovoltaic, power storage, tenant electricity models. One of theses projects with DREWAG you are about to see now. How Dresden’s tenants contribute to the climate and to energy saving should show the project “smart tenants”. That’s why we are today on this roof At the end of 2018 a PV-system was installed at then roof of Blasewitzer Straße 36 and an tenant electricity model was introduced We meet with DREWAG expert Enrico Neuhaus What does tenant electricity mean? Tenant electricity means, that the customer is directly supplied from the self-generated solar power from the system on their roof And what happens when the sun does not shine? The customers will be supplied with green electricity from the public power grid What is the advantage of tenant electricity? Suppose a 1-2-person Household consumes about 1,400 Kilowatt hours per year That means a price advantage of up to ten percent over the previous electricity bill How is that Consumption recorded? We measure that consumption via intelligent measuring equipment It records exactly the usages of the tenants These will be then faced against the production of the PV-System and these results are recorded in the MAtchUP project MAtchUP runs until 2022 – We’ll keep you up to date!
