Very low energy buildings

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.

ADELINE provides architects and engineers with accurate information about behaviour and the performance of indoor lighting systems. Both natural and electrical lighting problems can be solved, in simple rooms or the most complex spaces. ADELINE produces innovative and reliable lighting design results by processing a variety of data (including: geometric, photometric, climatic, optic and human response) to perform light simulations and to produce comprehensive numeric and graphic information.

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.

The fund aims to create a financing framework to energy efficiency measures that will cut energy bills and reduce carbon emissions. The savings made on energy costs will be used to pay off the upfront loans and be ploughed back into the fund. As well as energy efficiency measures, the fund may also invest in decentralized energy schemes and new waste technology.
