Energy efficiency technologies and materials

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

The energy efficient retrofit concept is based on a reduction of the primary energy need to a third of the German requirements for new buildings and on the environmental friendly supply of the remaining need including the neutralisation of the CO2 emissions. The main goal is to have an CO2 emission neutral building. High performance windows, an integrated insulation system with good airtightness and nearly no thermal bridges, mechanical ventilation with high heat recovery rates, user-dependent lighting and heating are measures to reduce the needs.

  AnTherm provides totally new capabilities for evaluating building envelope elements or even whole buildings with particular attention to thermal bridges and (optionally) vapour diffusion. It provides modern three dimensional visualization functionality speeding up the complex evaluation process in terms of qualitative research followed by quantitative (numerical) analysis of results.

The site is designed for anyone whose job is to save energy at work. It provides free guidance on heating, air conditioning, lighting, compressed air, motor-driven equipment, etc., and advice and information on energy management techniques. The editor and his associates are able to answer queries. The site emphasises real-life practical energy-saving solutions and avoids debate about policy, legislation, regulations, carbon trading and global warming.
