Design Tools

Software according to the modular principle

Our work is focused on advancing and validating efficient planning tools and on providing reliable datasets for calculations and model-based analyses. Due to tightened requirements on energy efficiency and new methods, the demand for calculation tools enabling the assessment of lighting and energy performance assessment of buildings and districts has increased. Fraunhofer IBP offers a comprehensive range of digital solutions. The focus will be on tailored solutions to the German standard DIN V 18599 and on the development of consulting / information tools either for designers or decision-makers.


Development of Design Tools

There are many ways in which we process the findings and experiences from our extensive daily project work to transfer these results to practical applications. For instance, our experts have created numerous software products, which support and advance the knowledge transfer in connection with energy-efficient construction.
