New approaches to analysis and planning

In implementing operative efficiency measures, the actors concerned depend on data processed by reliable analytic and planning tools. The required information technology is available. EnEff:Stadt and EnEff:Wärme promote the development of planning aids facilitating, for example, the manageable preparation of municipal energy concepts as well as new concepts of heat distribution, models for energy and CO2 balancing as well as software for energetic housing structure analysis. In this context, research also contributes towards improved cooperation between architects, planners, municipalities and energy supply companies while promoting the implementation of integral planning.


Note: This page will present the first results and descriptions of relevant research and development.

EnEff:Wärme - Forschung für energieeffiziente Wärme- und Kältenetze

sOptimo: Structurally optimising energy supplies for industrial parks

The focus of the sOptimo project is on implementing energy efficiency potential in the case of energy supply systems. For this purpose a structural optimisation method is being developed that enables designers to find the best solution.

EnEff:Wärme - Forschung für energieeffiziente Wärme- und Kältenetze

Tools for energy planning guidelines – using Ismaning as an example

In addition to major, course-changing decisions from the national government and federal states, climate change also requires that local communities take measures to ensure the sensible use of energy and its secure supply as a sensitive commodity. In Ismaning they are aiming to achieve holistic, efficient energy planning.

EnEff:Stadt - Forschung für die energieeffiziente Stadt

UrbanReNet – Networked renewable energy concepts in urban and rural settings

The aim of the project is to systematically investigate the energy generation, storage and networking potential in existing buildings and urban spaces within the settlement network in order to develop a design tool for producing integrative energy supply concepts at the neighbourhood level.

EnEff:Stadt - Forschung für die energieeffiziente Stadt

Grid-reactive buildings

The joint "grid-reactive buildings" project is aimed at viewing buildings holistically as part of the energy system, whereby the intention is to investigate, among others, the primary energy, exergy and energy industry aspects and, as a result, develop a proposal for a consistent assessment methodology.

Planning, monitoring and visualising energy systems with INSEL

INSEL is a software for understanding, planning, monitoring and visualising energy systems. For this purpose it provides state-of-the-art functions as blocks, for example for simulating meteorological data as well as electrical and thermal energy components, which can be linked to provide a solution to a specific problem.
