Together with the international real estate group Lendlease, E.ON is installing the sustainable energy supply for a new and innovative urban district on the former Expo site in Milan. The signing of a 25-year joint venture lays the foundation for supplying 565,000 square metres of the site called "MIND" with 41 Gigawatt hour per year of cooling and 29 Gigawatt hours per year of heating in one grid.The energy required for this comes 100 percent from renewable sources like green electricity, channel water, well water and the ambient air. Furthermore, all used energy is recycled intelligently and efficiently. This makes the Milan district one of the largest neighbourhoods in Europe to be supplied with energy in such a sustainable way. The aim of "MIND" is to create a unique place for scientific, economic, social and cultural innovation. To this end, a mixed use of the site is planned with businesses, residential, commercial and recreational areas as well as various service providers. The Joint Venture is investing a mid-double-digit million euro amount in the "Milano District Innovation" project.
