Research Group Advanced Building Technology (E2G)
While our society is willing to go for zero energy and plus energy buildings, our buildings still have to be prepared for the use of 100% renewable energy.
As a result, innovations in building technology and grid-responsive operation of buildings are urgently required. A central challenge is the optimization of facility and controlling in the technical building equipment for decreasing energy demands. This includes especialy lower heat flow densities for heating and cooling.
The E2G group at the University conducts research in the field of technical building equipment with a focus on heating and cooling with thermo-active construction components, ventilation technology and indoor air flow, façade-integrated building technology, and energy system technology for buildings.
Economic viability, energy and resource efficiency as well as workspace and living quality are the focus of metrologically oriented studies.
