Events - Energy Efficient Technologies for Building Envelopes Workshop - 25-27 November 2020, Dresden, Germany

miércoles, 7 de octubre de 2020

According to the Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD), all newly planned buildings shall be “nearly zero-energy” buildings by December 2020. Furthermore, long term renovation strategies for existing buildings are needed to ensure a low and zero-emission building stock all over Europe by 2050.

Nanotechnology offers Energy Saving Solutions for Buildings such as Smart Windows, Solar Energy Harvesting, Active Energy Storage or Super Insulative Elements and can therefore be an important part to achieve this mission.

We welcome you to a colorful technical workshop to see the latest trends and discuss about most promising technologies for the Energy Efficient Buildings of the future!


Day 1 – Energy efficient technologies for building envelopes
Day 2 – Reliability, life time and characterization
Day 3 – Energy smart solutions in membrane architecture (German only)
