Study: the meaning of the energy-efficient building shell for the energy turnaround and the climate protection

The building renovation rate has to increase quickly, the energetic renovation must find a broad social approval. The energetic efficience is the silver bullet for the cost-optimized energetic turnaorund and the archievement of reaching the climate goals.



Together with DLR and industrial partners, aerogel insulation materials are characterized thermally and acoustically. A measuring device for determining thermal conductivity in the temperature range up to 1000 °C is being developed.
