On the occasion of Future Energy Day 2021 on October 29, 2021, the committed municipalities of Berne were awarded the Minergie rating. The municipality of Ostermundigen is ranked third in the large municipality category.
The Minergie Ranking is a competition launched by Minergie Switzerland. The 2018 classification was originally developed by the canton of Bern, and the 2018 classification was conducted for the first time both for the canton of Bern and at the national level.
Municipalities are important actors in promoting energy-saving and renewable energies construction methods. Ranking stimulates the exchange of experiences between municipalities and competition stimulates municipalities to use their rooms to maneuver effectively.
Points are awarded according to five criteria
The competition is organized in three categories: small, medium and large municipalities. Points are awarded according to five criteria.
This includes the number of Minergie Certificates for New Buildings per inhabitant, the number of Minergie Certificates for Renovations per inhabitant, the Minergie Certified Energy Reference Area per inhabitant, and the number of Minergie-A, Minergie-P and MinergieECO Certificates per inhabitant also as a complete commitment to the community.
Third place thanks to the Mundiger lighthouse project
Thanks to the lighthouse project for a total of eight kindergartens already partially planned and implemented in the Minergie-A-Eco building standard, the municipality was able to secure third place behind the municipalities of Zollikofen and Münsingen. The new kindergarten buildings are designed as modular buildings made of prefabricated timber elements, meet Minergie-A-Eco standards and have a photovoltaic system on the roof.
This means that more electricity is generated throughout the year than kindergartens need. With very good thermal insulation and improved building size, operating costs (heat and electricity) can be significantly reduced compared to older buildings.
Through its commitment to Minergie, the municipality of Ostermundigen wants to make an important contribution to sustainable energy policy and a healthy economy: energy-efficient buildings reduce energy consumption, reduce carbon dioxide emissions and enable the profitable use of renewable, local and carbon dioxide-free energy. energies.
Minergie in brief
Minergie is a voluntary Swiss construction standard for buildings. The focus is on the living and working comfort of users in new buildings and renovations.
This is made possible by the high-quality building envelope and regular renewal of air. Minergie buildings require low energy and the highest possible percentage of renewable energies.
Construction according to Minergie is very suitable for both municipal and private builders. It can reduce energy consumption and increase living comfort.
