The project „SWIVT: Siedlungsbausteine für bestehende Wohnquartiere – Impulse zur Vernetzung energieeffizienter Technologien“ dealt with innovative energetic technologies for refurbishing quarters, strategies to improve existing quarters as to their primary energy demand and their environmental impacts. The concepts were developed for the Darmstädter Postsiedlung. It was finished in 2017.

Consequently, the project SWIVT II was initiated. It contains the implementation of the refurbishement of the Darmstädter Postsiedlung. Depending on their economic and environmental performance, key strategies of the concepts that were developed in SWIVT will be realized. Additionally, a evaluation of the forecasted key parameters of the implemented concept is going to take place (economic parameters, primary energy demand, global warming potential).

The Chair for Material Flow Management and Resource Economy is in charge of the environmental evaluation of the implemented concepts. Furtheron, a concept for measuring exhaust gases of the CHP plants will be implemented to evaluate emissions in dynamic generation profiles. Finally, an evaluation of the results as to their transferability to other existing quartes serves as a basis to apply the results in a wider context.
