our Building Research
Buildings play an important role in the energy transition. They offer a great potential to achieve the climate protection goals. Solar Decathlon Europe 21/22 creates a platform where innovative approaches in architecture meet building and energy research. This research is supported by the funding initiative “Energiewendebauen” of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). We have already compiled an overview of the research relevance and the impact of previous competitions together with our partners. You can read the report (PDF) as well as the paper here. ●
In some selected areas, the SDE 21/22 provides the occasion for a closer look at their current research relevance.
Prefabricated and modular construction methods are becoming increasingly important in the building sector. The degree of prefabrication of buildings is increasing and more work steps are shifted from the construction site to the production hall. Prefabrication and modular construction are important success factors in the Solar Decathlon Europe.
