For a livable, climate-neutral future

Munich, April 22, 2021 –

GETEC and SEMODU, an innovative start-up for modular and CO2-neutral project development, have founded a joint company to implement new and pioneering energy concepts. The successful concept: green, regenerative energy solutions based on standardized room modules for long-term sustainable and resource-saving living and working.

The objective of the new joint venture is to implement an innovative and climate-neutral energy supply for the upcoming neighborhood developments and new construction projects of SEMODU and other real estate developers throughout Germany. By combining their respective core competencies, the partners also want to develop modular technology rooms that will be used in innovative modular buildings. With the help of state-of-the-art storage solutions and the “power-to-heat” principle – i.e. heat from excess electricity – fossil fuels are to be replaced in the long term, paving the way for a CO2-free heat transition.

“When looking for a new home, the average private person usually has to choose between living comfort and sustainability for financial reasons. We can no longer accept this circumstance if we want to meet the im-mense demand for living space on the one hand and the protection of our environment on the other. For this reason, we are delighted to have found in GETEC a strong partner and industry specialist that not only has the appropriate resources and expertise, but is also willing to work with us for a sustainable, livable future,” says Frank Talmon l’Armée, CEO of SEMODU AG, about the new partnership.

“Our focus is clearly on sustainable and climate-friendly real estate supply. The areas of tension between our two industries are closely interlinked and have always had a reciprocal effect on each other. It is therefore essential that we look for solutions to problems across all sectors and are prepared to tackle them together. The cooperation with a young, innovative company like SEMODU is exactly what we were looking for. We complement each other perfectly and will achieve a lot together,” says Michael Lowak, CEO of the GETEC Group’s Real Estate segment.

The first joint project: a neighborhood for age-appropriate living in the Stuttgart metropolitan region with a tailored energy and mobility concept, numerous green spaces, and using recycled concrete and high-quality wooden façade elements.

A first branding of the new joint venture is already in development and will probably be launched in the second half of the year. The cooperation partners are convinced that they will be able to create additional energy-efficient and climate-neutral living space at scale in the coming years.
