Aktivfassade – Consequent Integration of Components for Energy Supply in Refurbishment

The aim of this research project was the development of fundamentally new and intelligent energy supply systems via the façade of existing storey buildings, which allowed a high degree of integration of the active and passive building technology elements into prefabricated façade modules.

On the one hand, this offers the possibility of a considerable reduction of the total refurbishment costs and, on the other hand, great potential to overcome barriers in the rehabilitation process (keyword: acceptance of occupants). At the same time, the development of such intelligent energy supply concepts entered new ground in the area of highly efficient refurbishment.

IFZ was responsible for the socio-scientific accompaniment of the project (experts' and residents' surveys and interviews).
