Food Campus


The Food Campus Berlin covers a 14,000 m² large construction site located in Berlin. It will offer a floor area of 40,000 m² and divisible production areas and laboratories for both emerging and established companies from the food industry.

A key objective of the innovative energy concept at the site is to cover heating and cooling demands by renewable energies, predominantly shallow geothermal energy. A BHE field of 166 boreholes will be installed in 2022 to a maximum depth of 45 meters each.

Given the heterogeneous utilization of energy, the hydrogeological and geothermal conditions, this location provides perfect conditions for testing the monitoring and control system developed in RECOIN. There, partners will be able to comprehensively test the project’s innovation in one subsection (10-20 BHEs) of the BHE field.
