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.
