Green Building

Green Building with Residential Buildings – What Characterizes Residential Buildings

Objective for future residential buildings is a constant improvement in the heating heat requirement with an accompanying reduction in the CO2 output in the building operation. The transformation of energy from sun, water and wind power is the greatest hope for carbon-free energy supply systems. The unstable availability and the still unresolved storage effectiveness still leave a lot of leeway for widely diversified research activities. Still, an energy consumption as economical as possible is therefore the primary approach to reduce energy consumption and thus CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.

• What must future buildings look like? Is there an ideal building form?

• Are the investigations of heating requirement and primary energy requirement sufficient indicators for an ecological total evaluation in the building stock?

• How can solar energy reserves be stored efficiently?

A Green Building is not necessarily shaped by its external appearance. Rather, it is the “inherent values” of buildings such as e.g. energy consumption, resource consumption, recycling ability, etc. that are called “green” and are thus associated as compatible to environment. Synergetic building constructions can shape a Green Building and optimize component functions by means of multi-functional properties.
