The Green Garage offers 280 square metres of modern working space for six start-ups, as well as space for workshops and seminars for up to 60 people. The building, originally a historic garage built in 1927, was preserved during its conversion and is an example of climate-friendly conversion of existing buildings. It's historic, beautiful wooden garage doors have been retained, but Climate-KIC have brought the venue into the modern age by heating it with biogas, installing a solar roof an connecting the electrical systems to the EUREF campus smart grid.
