Environmental protection has not only existed for us since climate change, we have been living it for many years. For us this includes
-Use of energy saving lamps
-avoidance of small packaging
-consistent waste separation
Since October 2003, we have installed a combined heat and power plant (CHP) in parallel with our boilers to generate electricity and heat. The DACHS combined heat and power plant operates on the principle of cogeneration. A combustion engine drives a generator that produces electrical energy. About 90 percent of the resulting heat is fed directly into the building's heating network and is used for heating purposes and hot water. The electrical output is 5.5 kW, the thermal up to 12.5 kW. According to calculations by the manufacturer Senertec, this achieves CO2 savings of over 3.13kg/operating hour, thus over 22 tons per year per year .
To ensure that our guests continue to hear only the sound of chirping birds, the system is equipped with a sound and heat insulation capsule. The sound insulation level at a distance of 1 m is approx. 56 dB(A) and thus complies with DIN 45635.
The most recent values:
With the BHKW we have generated since 2003 in over 89000 operating hours almost 500,000KW/h electrical energy and thus saved 306.9 tons of Co2!!!
So that our guests can get along in Berlin without a car, we hold besides car parking spaces in the courtyard, 8 hotel own bicycles also all tickets of the public transport ready.
