KoPro Lzk+ - Cost and process optimization in the life cycle of nearly zero energy buildings

The aim of the project is to develop a continuous process chain for the energetic-economic optimization of zero and plus energy buildings. The project will focus on proven and new approaches to cost reduction of nearly zero energy buildings (nZEBs) at all stages of the life cycle. The main goal is to identify the extra-costs for nZEBs, and to promote innovative approaches taking into account the cost-effectiveness for all the Stakeholders. A database containing important cost parameters and potential savings will be developed.

LEKOECOS - combined economic-ecological life cycle assessment model

The consumption of ecological and economic resources over the whole life cycle is supposed to be anticipated and optimised in the design process of buildings and refurbishments. A combined life cycle assessment model together with an economic-ecological base element catalogue considering the klima:aktiv criteria was developed based on the structure of the life cycle cost model LEKOS and the ecological valuation tool Ecosoft.

LTS Flywheel - Long Term Storage-Flywheel: New approaches for increasing the economically usable storage time and safety

Development of the fundamentals for a Long Term Storage (LTS)-flywheel for decentralized storage of electrical energy (e.g. from wind or PV power plants), with a significant increase in storage time (goal: 12 hours) and safety, featuring low system costs. Therefore, the LTS-Flywheel is an essential contribution to the building of the future.

LessIsMore - Energy efficient human centric lighting by innovative components and daylight integration

Human Centric Lighting (HCL) is focused on the positive visual and non-visual (biological) effects of light on humans, but is wasting energy by the inefficient use of components and daylight. In LessIsMore an exemplary pilot installation will be developed and evaluated.

LifeCycle Tower - Energy efficient prefabricated multi-storey timber houses

Based on the results of previous research projects, the project at hand deals with the development of a wooden prefabricated module construction for energy efficient office buildings with up to 20 storeys. This sustainable system ensures cost certainty through the whole life cycle of the building.

Lightyard - From courtyards to lightyards

The feasibility of daylight-optimized solutions for retrofitting courtyards by an intelligent alignment of different materials is checked. With it, daylighting levels in lower floors can realistically be increased tenfold. Additionally, a calculation tool for generating optimal courtyard solutions is designed. Besides daylighting parameters also economic and engineering criteria are considered.

Living and Working in the Moosburg, the "community of education"

The design aims not only at creating comfortable living spaces and practical work environments, but at connecting these realms, thus providing a holistically attractive “living space”. A pilot project will be built on an appropriate site in the very core of Moosburg, neighbouring both the village square and the educational campus.

LowEnergyBuildingServices - Highly efficient presence detectors and end user technologies

Highly energy efficient presence detectors, control systems for sun shades etc. are de facto not available on the market. Regarding plus-energy office buildings, the minimisation of the power consumption of these components is a central criterion to achieve the "plus" part in terms of the energy of the building. A highly energy efficient presence detector was successfully sketched in this project, which undercuts the intended standby consumption of 0,05 W.

MOTIVE – Modeling, Optimizing, and technical integration of Vacuum-Glazing-Elements

This project addressed the development of construction details for the implementation of vacuum glazing panels in new windows. In this project such constructions (form of frame, thermal bridges, structural aspects, mounting of glass) were explored via empirical experiments and via simulation. As an outcome, a mock-up was constructed, and the findings were documented in a comprehensive document.
