Passive House primary school in Halle undergoes monitoring

The ecclesiastical funding body wanted to use ecological building materials for the construction of a new primary school and, with the energy-optimised building, ensure a high degree of learning comfort with manageable operating costs. This resulted in the first Passive House school building to be constructed using a timber frame structure in Saxony- Anhalt. Multi-year monitoring and accompanying sociological research have verified both its energy efficiency and acceptance.  more...

Cost-saving erection of large heat storage tanks

Scientists are testing a large overground hot water storage tank with lower production costs than comparable constructions thanks to its construction with prefabricated steel segments. The OBSERW research project is building on the experience gained from a large cool water storage tank that has been tried and tested in the district cooling network of the city of Chemnitz for more than ten years. For the first time, the construction principle, which is flexible in shape and size, could be transferred to hot water storage tanks that have to withstand high temperatures and temperature changes.  more...

Grid-supportive buildings and districts

The expansion of renewable energies requires increasingly flexible, complementary power generation as well as flexibilisation of the electricity demand from consumers. In addition to traditional electricity-to-electricity storage systems and flexible power plants, buildings can also play an important role in shifting electricity demand.  more...

Profitability of energyoptimised buildings

“Does that really pay off?” – this is something you often hear when people are talking about energyoptimised new buildings or refurbishment projects. Germany’s Energy Saving Act also formulates a requirement for cost-effectiveness. It is not easy to answer this question. For this reason, the terms ‘economic viability’ and ‘economically advantageous’ will first be defined.  more...

Schools plug into the sun

Photovoltaic systems in schools help save energy and enhance classroom teaching. They shape a school's image and indicate that energy supply is a future-focused subject. Grants are available to schools wanting to install photovoltaic panels.  more...

Schoolchildren are saving energy

At many schools they already exist: schoolchildren as energy detectives, energy managers or energy teams. They track down energy leaks, take the initiative, assume responsibility and ultimately know a great deal about saving energy. Their commitment is often also financially rewarding for their school.  more...
