Economic usage of Photovoltaic electricity in buildings

The aim of this project is to optimise the direct usage of PV-electricity produced in buildings. The main question concerning the right dimen­sioning of the PV generator should be answered in order to achieve a high direct usage rate of produced PV electricity under economic considerations. This analysis will be carried out for various building categories. As result, a calculation method will be developed (incl. report), in order to achieve the optimal, most economic PV system for various building categories and user typologies.

Energy package Kolpinghaus / Eco-Suite Hotel

The Kolping association’s dormitory for pupils and students has been extended. The energy demand of the newly constructed Eco-Suite Hotel is minimized by use of highly efficient components (such as LED lighting). Locally available energy sources (waste water heat and sunlight) are used and an on-site energy system is being created for the use of the heat energy surplus. Guests at Eco-Suite Hotel can experience life in a plus energy building.
