We don’t just save energy but also water! At the beginning of our renovations, 60 energy posts, which were attached to 10 km long water pipes, were pushed 30 m deep into the ground. To become the first establishment in East Friesland that heats up shower water and our heating system through geothermal heat another few 5 km long water pipes were set into the ground with sheet pilings. These are transporting all of our warm water via a pump to the hotel facilities. This enables us to have no CO2 emissions and work environment friendly. The electricity that is needed is mostly taken during night time. 10 KW of electricity give us 40KW of heat through the usage of geothermal heat. This also saves us about 10 000 liters of heating oil every year.
