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
