In diesem Buch wird der technische Weg von der Idee bis zur Realisierung eines energieautarken Solarhauses dargestellt. Konkrete technische Auswertungen und ein persönlicher Wohn-Erfahrungsbericht geben Auskunft über den Nutzen und die Besonderheiten dieser Bauweise. Die technischen und sachlichen Informationen vermitteln Planungs- und Entscheidungsgrundlagen für alle, die durch Energieeinsparung und Sonnenenergienutzung ganz auf konventionelle Energie verzichten wollen und das ohne Einschränkungen im Wohnkomfort.

This report, by the ABRACADABRA H2020 project, presents the attractiveness of a new renovation strategy based on volumetric Add-ons and Renewable Energy Sources (AdoRES) intended as one (or a set of) Assistant Building unit(s) - like aside or façade additions, rooftop extensions or even an entire new building construction - that “adopt” the existing buildings (the Assisted Buildings) to achieve nearly zero energy standards.

The Energy Efficiency Indicators database contains annual data from 2000 to 2015, covering end use energy consumption for 8 energy products, end use energy efficiency indicators, and carbon intensity indicators for 4 sectors (residential, services, industry and transport) for the IEA member countries. The indicators are computed by using key sectorial activity data, for example, passenger kilometre energy intensity by mode/vehicle type (MJ/pkm).

This statistical report by the International Energy Agency (IEA), is designed to help understand what drives final energy use in IEA member countries in order to improve and track national energy efficiency policies. It is the second edition of a comprehensive selection of data that the IEA has been collecting each year, after its member states recognised in 2009 the need to better monitor energy efficiency policies. The report includes country-specific analysis of end uses across the largest sectors – residential, services, industry and transport. It answers questions such as:
