    Ten outstanding concepts awarded

    On 6 December 2017, ten outstanding and innovative concepts were awarded prize money totalling 280,000 euros at the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy in Berlin. The respective juries awarded five winners in both the “Concepts for Future-oriented Buildings and Districts” category and in the “Ideas for an International Energy Competition” category in the ideas competition held by the EnEff.Gebäude.2050 funding initiative.  more...
     

    Web portal for energy-optimised buildings and districts

    The website of the ENERGIEWENDEBAUEN research initiative is now online. The German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy is bundling its long-standing subsidy measures entitled Energy Optimized Building, Energy-Efficient City and Energy-Efficient Heating and Cooling Networks, and also research on thermal energy storage and low-temperature solar thermal energy systems in the redesigned research initiative. They are being brought together under one umbrella initiative.  more...

    Sustainable, attractive university building

    On 11 March 2017, the new building by architect Daniel Libeskind was officially inaugurated in Lüneburg, Germany. The new main building of Leuphana University is open to students and culture fans now. The building is a flagship project for the transition towards a climate-neutral campus.  more...
     

    Predictable heat yield

    The demand for large-scale solar thermal systems in district heating networks is increasing. Thereby the need for more powerful calculation programs is also increasing. Investors require predictions of the expected heat yield of solar thermal systems for their projects. A new calculation program shall now make that possible.  more...
     

    "We have to increase our efforts!"

    The first ENERGIEWENDEBAUEN conference took place in Berlin from 30 - 31 January, 2017. Some 350 participants from research, academia, architecture and planning offices, politics, energy suppliers, cities and municipalities as well as the real estate industry discussed how the energy supply of buildings and districts could be made future-proof. The aim of the German federal government is to create a climate-neutral building stock by 2050. This will not be easy to achieve.  more...

    Refurbishment roadmaps for districts

    So far, the rate of refurbishment of the building stock has been around one per cent. How could the annual refurbishment rate be increased significantly – to about three per cent? Together with municipalities, researchers are looking into obstacles while developing refurbishment plans for differently structured model districts. As planning instruments, these plans are intended to help municipalities tap into previously unused refurbishment potentials.  more...

    Learning and working in an energy-plus school

    Uhland School in Stuttgart, which dates back to the 1950s, no longer accorded with today's structural and energetic standards. The renovation work is now almost complete and the City of Stuttgart is getting its first energy-plus school. A photovoltaic system on the roof and façade of the building covers the electricity requirement.  more...

    New lighting strategies for streets, footpaths and squares

    LED is the future of street lighting. The LED Walkway on the grounds of Berlin’s Technology Museum, which opened in March 2015, demonstrates potential applications. The lighting technology developed allows the lighting level and light conditions to be adapted to external factors such as weather conditions and traffic volume. Spaces can now be set to a defined brightness with minimum stray light. The “StEffi Street Lighting” research project, launched in May, aims to develop and evaluate concepts for space-specific lighting and increase the potential savings with LED technology.  more...
     

    Energy-efficient use of university buildings

    Using the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich as an example, researchers want to show how efficiency improvements can pave the way for a climate-neutral university campus. In the project HoEff-CIM, the buildings are reproduced and evaluated in a model with the aim of developing appropriate refurbishment strategies and an energy management system for building operation.  more...

    Energy-plus concept tested on housing estate

    A housing estate was built on an industrial waste ground with over 180 residential units built to energy-plus standards. But how much does it cost to operate this low-energy building type in an energy efficient way? And how much influence do the residents have over energy consumption? To find out, researchers from the Munich University of Applied Sciences and the Dresden Technical University monitored the area by taking measurements, and optimised the technology in operation. A software programme also visualised the energy consumption for the residents.  more...
