Press release 52/23 - 23.06.2023

Flagship projects for the future

Augsburg receives extensive support for generating solar energy on campus.

The 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 of Augsburg has received millions of euros in support from the Free State of Bavaria for the expansion of the installation of photovoltaics on its campus buildings. From 2023 to 2026, a large part of the campus will be equipped with photovoltaic (PV) systems. The extensive rollout of photovoltaic systems is beginning with their installation on the physics and mathematics buildings and the building housing the lecture theatres of the Faculty of Business and Economics.

Between the years 2023 and 2026, the 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 of Augsburg will receive around 6.7 million in funds for the installation of photovoltaic systems, which complements the implementation of “Klimaland Bayern” projects. The electricity generated by the photovoltaic systems will be used to directly power buildings on campus.

“We are delighted about this excellent support, which will enable the 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 of Augsburg to transform its campus in a targeted and effective way delivering a permanently sustainable energy supply,” explains university president Prof. Dr Sabine Doering-Manteuffel. “Already this year, we will install photovoltaic systems on five faculty buildings. These are the buildings Physics North (R), the building housing the lecture theatres of the Faculty of Business and Economics (K), the Institute of Mathematics / Computer Centre (L), the Institute of Computer Science (N), and the 新万博体育下载_万博体育app【投注官网】 (H),” explains Gerhard Schenkel, who heads the department of building and technology.

Warm green roofs of the future

Construction work has already started for the buildings housing the lecture theatres of the Faculty of Business and Economics and the Institute of Mathematics. In addition to the installation of the photovoltaic systems, these roofs are undergoing extensive renovation in order to improve thermal insulation. “Before the photovoltaics are installed, the previously gravelled roof surfaces, so-called “cold roofs,” will be greened in the interest of species protection thus becoming “warm roofs,” explains Armin Wonnenberg from the department of building and technology. The future green roofs will help mitigate temperature increases in university buildings during summer in a climate-neutral way.

Installation work has already begun

By the end of October 2023, renovation work on the mathematics building and the building housing the lecture theatres of the Faculty of Business and Economics should be completed.
