Technical spectrum

  • Thermal building simulation of buildings in 3D models (determination of energy demand, heat stress in buildings and adaptation concepts, ventilation concepts)
  • Building materials (fields of application, ecological building)
  • Renewable energies (especially photovoltaics and heat pumps)
  • Building energy technology (heating and cooling systems, ventilation systems)
  • Building monitoring (recording of room climate and energy flows)
  • Energy efficiency of buildings (insulation measures, efficient building technologies, KfW efficiency buildings, passive house concept, plus energy houses)
  • Greenhouse gas emissions balancing
