Solingen

The pilot site Pommernweg consists of 31 buildings.

The eSESH services are aiming at 15 % overall energy savings and fixed-time demand reduction with the consequent benefit of lowering contracted power in the future.

The core part of the service is a central motor valve which interrupts the heating supply of the dwelling completely if it is closed. This motor valve is connected to a controller which closes the motor valve automatically, if the desired indoor temperature is reached.
