Innovative energy concepts

Design and planning support of integrated energy concepts for cost- and energy-efficient implementation of renewable energy sources for individual buildings and neighborhoods

In order to solve energy challenges in the target triangle of economic efficiency, sustainability and security of supply, integrated thinking and planning approaches are already necessary in the conception phase. The Center for Energy combines competencies and methods from the fields of thermal and electrical energy systems, photovoltaics, electromobility and urban transformation strategies in order to develop innovative energy supply concepts and to support architects, engineers and developers in the planning process.
We create integrated solutions and future-oriented concepts with efficient energy supply and a high level of thermal comfort at minimum life cycle costs.

Our services

  • Modeling of individual buildings and building networks
