Increasing sustainability by optimizing energy use and indoor environmental quality
Building Performance (BP) is a research group of the Building Physics and Services (BPS) unit at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). The group’s aim is to contribute to achieving a sustainable, energy-positive built environment with indoor environmental quality optimized for health, comfort and/or productivity.
This requires a multi-scale / multi-physics and trans-disciplinary approach that addresses technological solutions for energy generation, storage, distribution and demand reduction, and integrates and optimizes these in design, construction and operation of new and existing buildings. A performance-based perspective is at the center of these activities, providing opportunities for informed decision-making in the development of designs, products and services that foster the sustainability transition.
