MetaSim – From high-fidelity to data-driven building energy performance simulation
The project proposes a data-driven meta model to analyze building energy performance. Through the model reduction process, the complexity of building simulation is removed such that the method becomes accessible to practitioners in planning, thus supporting a more sustainable building design. ...
“Humans-in-the-loop” – An occupant-centric digital framework for sustainable building operation
The project will develop a digital framework for fusing, analysing, forecasting, and visualising dataflows to promote informed sustainable and occupant-centric building operation decisions, and sustainable behavioural changes of the occupants. To this aim, it is created a detailed energy model (EM) of the Haus ...
CPC technology for bearing structures in building construction
CarNe – Carbon Negative Biochar-based Building Insulation Materials
This research project proposes the development of bio-based, carbon negative building insula-tion material building upon a successful previous feasibility study. The material development is based on the use of organic waste material which is further processed using natural binders and a subsequent carbonization ...
MoCool - Occupant-centric, mobile, radiant panel cooling for increasing summer comfort in offices
This project proposes a novel mobile panel cooling solution for buildings in response to the increasing demand for space cooling. By using phase change materials for thermal energy storage the cooling panels are no fixed installation but can actually be moved freely in the space and used on demand only. Conventional ...
