The improvement of the energetic performance of school buildings is a priority for planners, public and school authorities. Within the research project “EnEff:Schule” the German Ministry of Economics and Technology promotes innovative pilot projects in refurbishment and new construction of schools.
This year’s symposium will be held in Hohen Neuendorf near Berlin in the recently constructed plus-energy school. Besides this pilot project further plus-energy schools will be presented in detail to the audience. Another field of attention will be placed in the newly developed performance contracting which is applied in the refurbishment of the school of Marktoberdorf. This model differs completely from existing competitive tendering procedures.
