Bayer’s EcoCommercial Building initiative adds domestic and system technology supplier to sustainable construction network

Stiebel Eltron, a German-based supplier of domestic and system technology, has announced that it has joined the EcoCommercial Building Programme of Bayer MaterialScience. In future, the two companies will closely cooperate in the area of sustainable construction, complementing Stiebel Eltron’s strength in systems engineering, ranging from domestic hot water and central heating to air conditioning and renewable energy solutions,
the announcement said.

Bayer MaterialScience, it will be remembered, has initiated the EcoCommercial Building Programme together with other companies and service providers in planning, modernisation and construction of energy-efficient and economic commercial buildings.

Speaking in the context of the partnership, Karlheinz Reitze, Member of the Management Board, Stiebel Eltron, said: “Our heat pumps contribute to substantial energy, and thus cost savings, and also help to create a comfortable atmosphere within buildings. As a market and technology leader in domestic and system technology, we are convinced that sustainable construction requires a holistic approach — covering everything from materials and energy generation to interior technology. In sustainable construction, we have to look beyond individual lighthouse projects. More so, we have to focus on realistic and cost-efficient implementation.”

Endorsing the view, Dr Thomas Braig, Regional Drector of the EcoCommercial Building Programme for Europe, the Middle East and Africa said: “We see a strong and growing demand for renewable energy solutions. The key today is to further increase the energy-efficiency of such solutions in a joint effort. Therefore, we are delighted to welcome another renowned network member. This helps us to expand the portfolio of our initiative with additional energy-efficient systems engineering, making use of renewable energy solutions of the highest technical standard.”

In Europe, the EcoCommercial Building Programme currently includes members such as, Bolidt Kunststoftoepassing, FIM Kernkompetenzzentrum Finanz & Informationsmanagement, Ingenieurbüro P Jung, Linzmeier Bauelemente, Silence Solutions, Solon SE, Puren, as well as Bayer Sheet Europe and Bayer Technology Services, the announcement said.

According to Bayer MaterialScience, it also supports the planned ‘Climate city of the future’ in the Ruhr region, with its network. The objective of the large-scale project ‘InnovationCity Ruhr’ is to transform a complete urban district of the German City of Bottrop into a low-energy community. Through sustainable modernisation, a role-model district for climate protection and energy-efficiency is created. MaterialScience said that it provided technologies, materials and expertise from its EcoCommercial Building Programme.
