building integrated solar active strategies


conference lecture, powerskin 2017

The research project “benefit E2“ analyzes the design potential when integrating the usage of solar energy within the building envelope. In a first step possible fields of action in the German building stock are determined using typology based solar studies. Following this typical existing wall and roof build-ups are analyzed regarding their creative, constructive, energetic and economicability for integration. In the end a comprehensive catalogue of measures should be developed describing the integration possibilities depending on building typology, construction and design. Furthermore it is targeted to plan and realize a prototype for an office façade system in cooperation with the third-party funder Goldbeck New Technologies GmbH. In consideration of the preassigned energetic, constructive and economic general conditions an overall design solution should be achieved.
