Efficient heat storage and energy generation system for thermal conditioning of buildings

The German government plans to achieve a nearly climate-neutral building stock by the middle of the century. In addition to heating a building efficiently, cooling is becoming increasingly important and new, sustainable solutions are needed. [more]

Investigation of the room-side heat transfer to building envelope components and development of a calculation method

Within the framework of the research project "Investigation of room-side heat transfer to components of the building envelope and development of a calculation method", a significant gain in knowledge about room-side heat transfer to components of the building envelope is to be achieved. [more]

Person focused tracking infrared heating system with design software for energy-efficient and comfortable heating of industrial halls

By the middle of this century, the building stock in Germany should be nearly climate-neutral according the climate goals of the German government. From 2020 onwards, the implementation of the nearly zero energy building standard is being implemented for new buildings. In addition to residential and office buildings there is also a great need for energy-efficient industrial buildings (production halls etc.). [more]

Development of a sound insulation wall made fron photobioreactors

The photobioreactors available on the market are aimed at the production of microalgae biomass. The goal of this interdisciplinary project is to develop a photobioreactor that has the additional functions of sound insulation with regard to the passage of sound through a separating component as well as sound absorption in a room.

Development of a concept for nearly zero energy buildings using Peltier elements

The reduction of energy demand and CO2 emissions is a central goal of the EU. Therefore, according to EU specifications, only "Nearly Zero Energy Buildings" are to be constructed from the year 2021 onwards. [more]


Development of a thermoelectric heating und cooling system with a high degree of efficiency

The German government plans to make the building stock almost climate-neutral by the middle of the century. By 2020, energy efficiency is to be improved by 20 % and CO2 emissions are to be reduced by 20 % compared to 1990 levels. [more]

Flexible heat storage and distribution system for self-sufficient heating and cooling of buildings


Climate protection and sustainability are becoming increasingly important in all areas of life.[more]

Development of a timber construction wall for kindertartens and schools that is optimises in terms of building and room acoustics



In view of the need to renovate schools and kindergartens, buildings that can be erected quickly and at low cost are required. This need for buildings is intensified by the increasing number of pupils. [more]

Small House III  Large-scale demonstrator "indoor climate/recycled concrete/solid construction"


In cooperation of the Departments of Building Physics / Low-Energy Buildings, Construction Material Technology and Concrete Structures and Structural Design, the first building in Germany has been created in which only concrete with recycled aggregate was used. [more]

Window test stand


Windows, doors and glazing elements are essential building components and must meet both aesthetic and practical requirements.  [more]

HiPerCon - High Performance Composite Constructions

Composite constructions offer high performance with minimised material input due to the appropriate use of the materials involved. [more]

Acoustic test stand


Noise protection is of key importance for buildings as well as for all infrastructure projects. Noise protection can have a decisive influence on people's health and well-being.  [more]
