The online check will calculate for different buildings types the potential energy savings and gives advice with which measures the heating saving goal can be achieved. High energy prices are more and more demanding to the consumers. Costs for space heating and domestic hot water have nearly doubled in the last 10 years. A holistic energy efficiency retrofit can lead to up to 85 % energy savings. A more detailed building analysis can be realised by an energy consultancy which is partly sponsored by the German bank of the Federal State.

The German SurPlusHouse includes photovoltaic on all walls (also on the north side as a system was chosen that can produce electricity from diffuse radiation as well) and a heat pump for heating, domestic hot water and cooling. The building is very compact and results therefore and because of the vacuum insulation in very low transmission losses.
