Show Tool Information
- economic and
If the autarky rate is high, this means, that you are able to self-supply major parts of your energy demand. As the economical perspective is always a substantial fact for every investment decision, the energy cost savings as well as an estimation of the amortisation period are shown too. To evaluate the ecological impact, the CO2 savings, based on the national electricity mix are calculated.
Another major part of the tool is the so-called checklist, which can be created as a PDF-file. On the one hand, the idea of the checklist is to provide the possibility to save the calculation results and, on the other hand, it should serve as a further explanation how to interpret the calculation results correctly. The results are valid in general and not only for historical urban buildings. For those who are planning the integration of a storage in a historical urban centre (HUC), a further page is added, which provides them with additional information and advices from the Store4HUC project.
