  • Animal-aided design

    The concept of animal-aided design (AAD) integrates the needs of animals, whose living space is disappearing in the city through construction on green- and brownfield sites, from the very start of planning. Its goal is to protect or relocate native species by creating suitable replacement habitats.

C

  • Carsharing

    In carsharing, several users share one or more cars. The vehicles are provided by an operator based on two differing models: location-based (fixed parking) and free-floating carsharing (parking at any location within the usage area). Alongside these established models, there are also privately organised carsharing platforms.

D

  • Drittelmix (Three-way split)

    In the Hamburg housing policy of the three-way split, the Senate of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg aims to ensure that, in large construction projects (from approx. 30 housing units), at least one third of the housing units should be subsidised housing. A further third can be used for privately financed rental housing units and the final third for owner-occupied housing.

E

  • Energieeinsparverordnung (Energy-saving regulations)

    The Energieeinsparverordnung (EnEV; energy-saving regulations) are part of the Federal Government’s energy and climate protection policy. It is rooted in German commercial administration law and above all places requirements on certain types of building.

  • Grünes Netz Hamburg

    Ein Ziel des Hamburger Landschaftsprogramms ist die Verknüpfung von Parkanlagen, Spiel- und Sportflächen, Kleingartenanlagen und Friedhöfen durch Grünverbindungen zu einem grünen Netz, um sich unabhängig vom Straßenverkehr auf Fuß- und Radwegen durch die Stadt zu bewegen. Das Grüne Netz Hamburg besteht aus zwei Grünringen und diversen Landschaftsachsen.

  • Grünes Netz Hamburg (Hamburg Green Network)

    A goal of the Hamburg landscape programme is the linking of parks, playgrounds, sports grounds, allotments and cemeteries via green connections to create a “Green Network” (Grünes Netz) so that you can move through the city independent of the traffic, on pedestrian and cycle paths. The Hamburg Green Network consists of two green rings and various landscape axes.

H

  • Hamburger Gründachstrategie

    Die Hamburger Gründachstrategie soll Anreize für den Bau von begrünten Dächern in einem fünfjährigen Zeitraum (bis einschließlich 31. Dezember 2019) generieren.

  • Hamburger Gründachstrategie (The Hamburg Green Roof Strategy)

    The Hamburg Green Roof Strategy intends to generate incentives for the construction of green roofs over a five-year period (up to and including 31 December 2019).

L

  • Leitkonzept: Stadt und Region der kurzen Wege (Guiding principle: the walkable city and region)

    Commissioned by the Federal Environment Agency, the guiding principle of “the walkable city and region” was created in 2011 as part of an assessment of the biodiversity strategy. It requires that daily tasks (walking to work or training, getting supplies or going to school or kindergarten) can be carried out without a car.

  • Life Science Nord Management GmbH

    Life Sciences Nord stellt ein Cluster dar und engagiert sich in Hamburg und Schleswig-Holstein für innovative Medizin.

M

  • Masterplan Active City

    The Master plan Active City was published in June 2016 and is based both on the ten-year strategy and on the ideas and concepts developed in the course of applying for the Olympic and Paralympic Games 2024, commissioned by the planning staff of the Senate Chancellery of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. The overarching goal is to allow as many of Hamburg’s residents as possible to engage in sport, with a focus on grassroots and competitive sports.

O

  • On-Demand-Shuttle-System

    With the system, customers in the catchment areas of a provider (local transport association or private) can use an app to request so-called shuttle-cars with six seats. If several people request similar routes at similar times, they share the ride. This serves as an attractive alternative to public transport.

P

  • Power-to-Gas

    A power-to-gas plant deploys a technology that uses water electrolysis to convert excess electricity from renewable sources into gas.

R

  • RegenInfraStrukturAnpassung

    The RegenInfraStrukturAnpassung (RISA) is a collective project of the Ministry for Urban Development and the Environment and Hamburg Wasser for the development of a future-proof rainwater management system for Hamburg. The goal is to develop suitable approaches to solutions to avoid flooding and other water-related issues.

S

  • Standards bei KfW-Effizienzhaus (KfW efficient house standards)

    The energy standard of a building defines its energy requirements per m2. On the basis of the EnEV, the Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW) has developed various efficient house standards. The Federal Government supports energy-related renovation and energy-efficient reconstruction to KFW efficient house standards via the KfW-Förderbank.

  • Switch points

    Switch points pool a wide range of transport offers in a single location, allowing comfortable switching between various types of transport. This can include bicycle racks or cages, spaces for carsharing, cargo bikes and e-scooters, park+rides, public transport stops (underground, suburban railway, bus) and e-charging stations.
