Overall energy concept for Tempelhofer Freiheit

Zero-energy and protection of historical monuments


The Tempelhof Airport was closed in Oktober 2008. The area around the building, constructed from 1936 to 1941, is of high political importance for the city of Berlin. An overall energy concept was to be elaborated for the "Tempelhofer Freiheit" area hosting the world's largest historically listed building, a unique city park area and an urban development on its outskirts. The goal is a zero-energy area of an exemplary character. For this, BLS Energieplan GmbH created an integrated infrastructure and energy concept in collaboration with Berliner Energieagentur GmbH.

Priority areas

  • Development and comparison of various supply approaches in compliance with the environmental and economic objectives
  • integrated approach to power and heat generation
  • Expandability – flexibility of growth
  • development and assessment of business models for area supply


  • Existing buildings with 300.000 m² of GAF
  • 3 new development areas with 1,015,000 m² of GAF
  • a park of approx. 230 ha

Planning contents

  • Assessment of needs for existing and new buildings
  • Creation of a specifications catalog for energetic building standards
  • Elaboration of possible supply approaches for an innovative modular expandable sustainable supply concept 
  • Temporal mapping of area and existing building development
  • cost estimation and follow-up cost calculation
  • Creation of a specification catalog for B-plans
  • Processing of recommendations for actions for energy development of the area and existing buildings
