Timber building technology – a way to increase energy efficiency in buildings
Timber frame buildings usually have very good thermal insulation. Their construction is generally suited to meet high standards in respect to low energy consumption. Heat bridges are more easilyExpand
GEMEN Implementation of Power-to-Gas in the Building Sector
This is a project of initiation in which the application of the Power-to-Gas future technology is investigated on plausibility for generating renewable methane for space heating and hot water inExpand
Load Control by Demand Side Management to Support Grid Stability in Building Clusters
Increasing numbers of photovoltaic systems and heat pumps in existing building clusters can lead to an overload of the associated electric grid substations. Expand
Multi-agent based simulation of smart building cluster for electric grid stabilization

Passive window ventilation openings in every-day use
In Switzerland, 70 % of building refurbishments are realised in stages. When only a window replacement is done, the new airtight windows can lead to a reduced infiltration air exchange andExpand
Electric vehicle batteries in energy storage systems: An economic analisys for Swiss residentials
Battery energy storage (BES) systems for residential buildings can contribute to power grid stability. The demand for decentralized storage capacity in Switzerland is expected to rise due toExpand
