A new neighbourhood with over 500 cooperative apartments is being built on the “Westfeld” in Basel which will meet the highest ecological, economic and technical standards. IWB is planning to build and operate an integrated heating, cooling, and power supply system for the area, together with the housing cooperative wohnen&mehr.
Based on its energy IoT platform KiwiOS X, Kiwigrid provides the necessary energy management, as well as the administration and processing of the data infrastructure. This allows the electricity meters of various residential units, PV systems, charging stations and heat pumps to be interconnected, intelligently controlled and managed as part of the ZEV. In addition, Kiwigrid has simplified the implementation of the ZEV into the systems for IWB, automated the creation of balancing groups and made the meter change more user-friendly. IWB supports property owners in all aspects of ZEV: from consultation, to the launch, to the execution, along with efficient management and billing during operation. In short, the property is upgraded, tenants benefit from renewable and cheaper electricity, and they receive a clear visualization of their energy flows.
The “Westfeld” is only the kick-off project for the partnership, more joint projects are planned for the future. IWB, Kiwigrid and BN intend to realize further associations for self-consumption in Switzerland. There are already some interested parties.
