Sustainability

We continually strive to reduce the environmental impact of Gut Pohnstorf. We do not rely on fossil fuels. Our electricity comes from 100% renewable sources through GP JOULE. Our charging infrastructure for electric cars also runs on green electricity.

 

 

The charging infrastructure and the purchase of our electric car were financially supported by the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Our vehicles have only efficient electric motors – if they have motors at all. In Berlin we were able and happy to live without a car. In Pohnstorf we need one regularly. But we have discovered that e-bikes are fun and can often replace a car. We are happy to rent these to our guests.

We have a wood carburetor in our basement which converts local wood into heat. The powers both our heating and warm water in the manor. It is supported by a solar thermal system on the roof. In the bright summer months, our warm water comes almost completely from the solar thermal system.

And as we are not ones to scrimp on the details, even this website is located on a server powered by green electricity:
