Pilot Action in Judenburg, Austria

Lindfeldgasse Comprehensive School

Lindfeldgasse Elementary School

The pilot action of the Austrian partners aims at the improvement of energy efficiency and heating system in a municipal school complex at Judenburg. The school complex Lindfeld consists of two school buildings which house primary school, comprehensive school as well as polytechnical school and a sports hall. The buildings were erected between 1969 and 1971 in the typical style of the era, the annex of the comprehensive school was added in 2004. The Municipality of Judenburg is the owner of the buildings and will retain ownership and management responsibilities after the project’s lifetime. The energy class of the older buildings has been identified as D average (energy-intensive building with 123 kWh/m2/year), of the newer annex as B (energy-saving building with 74 kWh/m2/year).

The following objectives have been agreed as part of the pilot:

  • Improvement of energy system;
  • monitoring buildings data;
  • increasing the comfort of the buildings use;
  • easier operation of the buildings;
  • promoting and disseminating knowledge about energy efficiency measures in buildings.
