IEA EBC Annex 75: Cost-effective Building Renovation at District Level Combining Energy Efficiency & Renewables

For the transformation of existing buildings to nearly zero energy buildings with low greenhouse gas emissions it is important to know which strategy is most cost efficient to reduce primary energy demand and greenhouse gas emissions of the buildings. Especially the right balance between renewable energy measures und energy efficiency measures is of high importance. To give an answer to this topic is goal of this project.

IEA SHC Task 61/EBC Annex 77: Integrated Solutions for Daylighting and Electric Lighting

Lighting accounts for 19% of the global electric energy consumption, and major savings can be achieved by intelligently connecting daylighting, electric lighting and control systems. At the same time, optimal visual and non-visual conditions must be provided for the user. Within this project the user requirements for lighting solutions and existing and novel control systems will be analyzed and documented. For evaluation purposes a consistent scheme for the characterization of daylight systems and an hourly rating model for integrated solutions will be worked out. Using a monitoring protocol, implemented integral lighting solutions will be evaluated in lab and field studies.

IEA-SHC Task 50: Advanced Lighting Solutions for Retrofitting Buildings

Retrofitting of non-residential buildings with energy efficient daylight and artificial lighting solutions can significantly contribute to reductions in electric energy consumption. However, appropriate technologies have to be made available to the stakeholders (investors, industry, consultants, designer) that are involved in the retrofitting process. Thus, system solutions for daylighting and artificial lighting were evaluated, simple rating and evaluation tools were developed and case studies that serve as best practice examples were monitored. The results were collected in the Lighting Retrofit Advisor, which helps stakeholders within the lighting retrofit process.
