Analyse, Bewertung und Verbesserung der Energieeffizienz von Hochschulgebäuden

Short description

About 20% of the total cost through planning and construction, the remaining 80% to be considered over the life cycle of a building only spent on the building operation. The dominant share make, as a rule, the energy costs. Especially with the Hessian universities, which represent the largest consumer group with a share of around half of the total energy consumption of the country estate, puts the issue of energy efficiency due to increasing energy prices and especially in front of goal of CO2-neutral state administration by 2030 in the focus of attention.

The aim of the research project is the development of methods for analysis, evaluation and improvement of energy efficiency of university buildings without substantial restrictions on research, teaching and comfort.

Particular attention will be given to the typical (mixed) (etc. as lecture halls, administrative buildings, engineering and laboratory building) apply usage in existing buildings as well as university-specific conditions (the context of research and teaching).

The transferability to other colleges and property should be ensured.
