Building Performance

Our 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. Our research and teaching focusses on:

  • computational building performance simulation as an enabling technology in this context;
  • optimization of indoor environmental quality for health, comfort and/or productivity.

The chair is involved in the program of the Smart Cities Center
