eeef finances the Berlin Jewish Museum's retrofit
The Jewish Museum Berlin Foundation (JMB) and Johnson Controls Systems & Service GmbH (JC), signed an Energy Performance Contract (EPC) of EUR 3.1 million of energy efficiency measures on the two buildings of the museum. Based on a detailed analysis of energy consumption of both buildings performed by Johnson Controls, energy efficiency measures will include optimization of heating, ventilation & air conditioning, energy efficient lighting and optimization of the energy management system.
The eeef provides upfront financing to Johnson Controls, the Energy Service Company (ESCO) in charge of guarantying the energy savings. To do so, the EEE F purchases 70% of the Johnson Controls’ energy savings revenues against the Jewish Museum for the building retrofitting services performed by Johnson Controls. The retrofit leads to a reduction of CO2 emissions by 1,812t p.a - equal to approximately 55 % savings compared to the baseline
year 2010. Johnson Controls Systems & Service GmbH guaranteed energy savings of net EUR 294,327 per annum (43.2%) and is responsible for maintenance and building operation services for the period of 10 years.
The JMB together with JC won the European Energy Service Initiative’s Award for the best European energy efficiency service project.
The baroque building Collegienhaus, and the postmodern Libeskind Building are the two main buildings of the Jewish Museum Berlin. Originally built in 1735 and almost completely destroyed during the Second World War, the Collegienhaus was rebuilt between 1963 and 1969.The Libeskind Building was built between 1996 and 1999 and represents the largest part of the museum complex. The character and usage of both buildings offer significant energy savings potential.
