Climate Neutral Buildings and Cities

Core competencies of the Energy-Optimized Buildings working group are analysis and development of materials and components for energy-efficient buildings, the development of systems, tests directly on the building, and monitoring with operational optimization. There is interdisciplinary networked expertise in the areas of:

  • Expertise in the development, characterization and modeling of innovative functional materials, components and systems.
  • Comprehensive technological know-how in the field of building envelope and building services engineering
  • Thermal insulation and heat storage technologies
  • Development and characterization of innovative glazing
  • Innovative energy concepts for buildings and neighborhoods
  • Complex monitoring projects
  • Life cycle analyses
  • Energetic evaluation and optimization of greening systems
  • Implementation of contract research and coordination of research projects
