Efficient and comfortable technologies and systems to achieve optimum indoor climate
Fraunhofer IBP scientists explore energy-efficient systems, concepts and technologies, which provide user-oriented indoor climates in an environmentally friendly way. Bearing in mind that creating an efficient and sustainable indoor climate solution requires a perfectly harmonized integrated system that encompasses both architecture and technical building systems, they find solutions that optimally meet the requirements – such as thermal comfort, energy efficiency, occupational or operational safety. Our experts develop, implement and test holistic design approaches, construction and operation processes on the basis of “Building Information Modeling” (BIM) concepts.
Additionally, they focus on the integration of structural, technical and function-specific measures in the field of central building control systems and building automation. To optimize building operation and to achieve a high level of energy efficiency (also in complex building structures), the different building services systems (such as heating, ventilation, cooling or lighting and shading systems) need to be optimally adapted and integrated into an overall system.
