Energieeinsparverordnung plus: houses as small power plants with electric-petrol station function. The Fraunhofer IBP and the Institute for solar energy systems ISE are when developing the Energieeinsparverordnung plus, which was opened on December 7, 2011 in Berlin by Mrs Dr. Merkel, the German Chancellor and the IBP Director Professor Hauser, involved. Here, the latest technical achievements in the field of energy efficiency are located on 130 square meters of living space. The Fraunhofer IBP has accompanied and scientifically prepared the architectural competition and the technical criteria for the building, where currently a test family lives, created. Through the innovative photovoltaic plant of the Fraunhofer ISE on the roof and facade areas, as well as the use of a heat pump produces the House consume more power than its inhabitants. The excess energy is fed into the public grid or used to fuel the vehicles on the hotel’s own charging station.
The House is a prototype for future decentralised energy supply systems, especially for rural settlement structures. Another project of Fraunhofer IBP in the field of energy is the development of the concept”energy Lake Stuttgart city. A strategy model in cooperation with the city of Stuttgart, the EnBW Energie Baden-Wurttemberg AG and the University of Stuttgart was designed to save energy, which is characterized this particular efficiency and take into account real-life conditions, that it also interests and patterns of behaviour of private households to participating taken into account. A roadmap energy formulated instructions, as approximately can 3000 GWh per year saved and achieve an increase in energy efficiency by 20 percent by the year 2020. Another project of the Fraunhofer IAO is dealing with the redesign of a district. Together with partners, the scientists have designed a concept of innovation for the future area comprehensive 200,000 square metres of conversion of the old freight depot in Freiburg. There, urban uses such as logistics, living and working in a special way to be merged.
The challenge is production and sustainable building in the existing site potential and the development of technical capabilities in the fields of networked mobility, urban. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft presented their vision morning city “with a joint stand on the Hanover Trade fair, Hall 26, stand C08. from 23 to 27 April. Several exhibits illustrate under the motto technologies for the morning city solutions. urban challenges of the future. Here also the Fraunhofer-Allianz construction presents its impulses for the cities of the future. The Fraunhofer-Allianz building soon includes the Fraunhofer-Allianz building 17 research institutes of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Spread over 23 sites around 4,000 staff in the institutions of the Alliance work. Their objective is significant as research-relevant issues about building completely within the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft to represent and edit. As an interdisciplinary organization acting as an interface between business, research and policy. The Fraunhofer-Allianz building acts also as indicator and initiator of new and innovative topics related to the research of construction of. The Fraunhofer Gesllschaft soon the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft operates more than 80 research institutions, of which 60 institutions in Germany. More than 20,000 employees and staff, predominantly with natural or engineering and scientific education, edit the annual research budget of 1.8 billion euros.
