Enabling meaningful sustainability innovation through building physics and services research
The Building Physics & Services (BPS) unit at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) looks beyond energy-neutral and climate-neutral buildings. The aim is to generate new knowledge and to integrate and develop design methods that lead to a sustainable, healthy, comfortable and productive indoor and outdoor environment. The goals is to support truly sustainable habitats with energy generation near the end user, combined with energy storage and smart control technologies and designing and operating buildings and built environments that are sustainable, healthy and comfortable.Read more
Our Research Groups
Building Physics and Services works across six interdepartmental research groups.
The goal of the BM research group is obtaining more sustainable, durable and functional materials and products.
The research of the BL group focuses on daylight as well as artificial lighting, including both fundamental and applied research.
The BP group contributes to a sustainable, energy-positive built environment with an optimal indoor environmental quality.
The group develops design methods and adapts building services technology to ensure buildings meet current and future requirements.
The BA group addresses adverse health effects caused by human induced noise, and promotes positively perceived sound environments.
The BP group focuses on acquiring new knowledge and developing and integrating methods, based on physics research and application.
