The Upper Austrian BAUAKADEMIE relies on Environmental Technologie ECOTURBINO
Saving water and energy is a major topic at the Upper Austrian BAUAkademie with regard to climate protection and CO2 neutrality.
The Upper Austrian BAUAkademie serves as a training centre for the construction industry and as a third pillar in the tripartite building apprenticeship training. This approach, which goes beyond the classic model of vocational school and in-company training, makes the austrian worker’s training an international model and thus strengthens the reputation of the austrian construction industry in Europe and the world.
The Upper Austrian BAUAkademie has set itself the goal of becoming CO2 neutral and has already implemented a number of measures such as the conversion to a woodchip heating system and the installation of a photovoltaic system. A further topic, the hot water consumption, was tackled this year. The Bauakademie also has a hotel in which a total of 115 guests can stay overnight. Daily showers consume a lot of hot water and therefore a large amount of energy, in order to counteract this, the ECOTURBINO® water and energy saving system was installed in all showers. With the patented “Mini-Turbine” it was possible to reduce the water and energy consumption during showers by 36% while maintaining the same showering comfort for the guests.
