Energy Management – with a system
GERNGROSS constantly analyses its energy consumption and implements measures specifically to achieve energy savings and improve energy efficiency at the centre.
Water tank for cooling
Cooling requirements there are met using cooling towers on the roof. The ventilation systems use technical equipment for heat recovery.
Retrofitting saves electricity and money. Saving energy means protecting the climate. At GERNGROSS, this has long included specific measures such as successively retrofitting all the lighting on the façades and the interior with energy-saving LED technology.
Clean energy. Climate protection is close to our hearts. That’s why we use renewable energies. As every SES shopping mall is unique, it can be designed to take account of individual local conditions to the greatest possible extent. 100% of the electricity GERNGROSS purchases is green electricity.

What we do for humanity
Our staff are our most important success factor. We create jobs in the region and are a platform for local retailers. As a neighbourhood shopping centre, we offer people in the region the main products and services they need every day.
