Smart & Urban Tree - Exploring integrative possibilities of structures for urban shading

The project "Smart & Urban Tree" explores large-scale artificial structures, which may serve as a supplementary alternative to other greening measures, such as trees and facade greenery, in dense urban contexts, where traditional concepts cannot be applied in a satisfactory manner. Such structures offer a wide-range of to-be integrated functions and can contribute to mitigation of urban heat islands.

Smart ABC Smart Energy Efficient Active Buildings and Building Clusters

The EPBD recast 2010 targeted "nearly zero energy buildings". This low amount of energy is to be covered by energy from renewable energy sources. The project "Smart ABC" analysed a variety of relevant solution sets regarding the building performance and the renewable based energy supply options. Energetic and ecological impacts were analyzed in order to optimize the integration of renewable energy technologies in building standards and to find answers how to depict a building cluster regarding standards and tools.

Smart Services for resource optimized energy systems in urban districts

The concept of a smart city explicitly refers to a sustainable city development. To apply smart city concepts in practice, it is essential to develop practice- and profit-oriented business models (smart services), which at the same time generate social and ecological benefits. Smart services were developed for the application in three specific city development areas and their practicability was verified in a comprehensive stakeholder process with decision makers.

SocialLowCostFlex - Collaborative flexible low-cost energy supply concepts for social housing

This project aimed for feasible low-cost solutions, which allow residents of multi-party houses, with special focus on social housing to profit and participate in the energy transition process and associated trends (e.g. community generation units, exploitation of flexibility). The results of the project are low-cost concepts and business models of community generation units and utilization concepts, tested for their feasibility in a social housing complex. These concepts are based on special requirements of different lifestyles in low-income households and take the framework of social housing such as tenant fluctuation into account.
