Residential Renovation towards nearly zero energy CITIES


Aachen North

The City of Aachen has 248.000 inhabitants and is situated at the western border of Germany to Belgium and the Netherlands. It is a very important place for science and education with more than 50.000 students in total. The district Aachen-North is a heterogenous area with a mixture of recent and ancient industrial and residential buildings. Due to the development of the last 80 years there are many historical buildings for housing, a lot are listed buildings. Therefore urban planning focuses on revitalizing and improving the attractiveness of the district.

The district Aachen Nord (300 ha, 15500 inhabitants) is part of a multi-year urban development program “social city”. In the model site of the EU-GUGLE pilot about 1.500 residents are directly involved in the buildings.
