Energie 360° builds climate-friendly energy center in Dällikon


Zurich/Dällikon ZH – Energie 360° has been given the green light to build an energy center in Dällikon. Renewable energy supply is to be promoted through the use of waste heat. The municipality expects to save 3000 tons of CO2 per year.

The energy supplier Energie 360° has been awarded the concession by the municipality of Dällikon to build a climate-friendly energy network. According to a press release, Dällikon will be the third municipality in the Furttal valley, alongside Regensdorf and Buchs, to have an energy network that is supplied with CO2-neutral energy from the Green data center in Dielsdorf.

The planned energy network is fed by the conversion of waste heat from energy-intensive mainframe computers into useful energy. By eliminating fossil heating systems, the municipality expects to reduce CO2 emissions by 3,000 tons. “The project offers us the opportunity to drive forward the energy transition,” says municipal president René Bitterli in the press release.

The people of Regensdorf had approved the necessary land purchase. Construction is scheduled to start there in fall 2024. The center is expected to supply climate-friendly energy to public buildings and private properties in Dällikon from autumn 2027. Regensdorf and Buchs are to obtain their energy from there as early as fall 2026.

Energie 360° was responsible for planning, financing, construction and operation. The energy supplier has announced that it will be approaching homeowners and administrations in the coming weeks to inform them about the conditions for a connection. ce/heg
