Solar houses have a primary energy demand of maximum 15 kWh/m²a for heating and auxiliary. A thermal solar plant covers typically between 60 and 70 percent of the heat demand. The remainder is usually generated by a biomass boiler. The low primary energy demand of the solar houses (in German “Sonnenhäuser” or “SolarAktiv-Häuser”) is linked to additional costs at the building envelope and the building services systems. A new tool, developed at Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (Fraunhofer ISE), allows now the calculation of the necessary additional costs.

New fuel cell units generate heat energy and electrical energy with an efficiency of over 90 percent running on natural gas, and on hydrogen and methane produced using renewable energy. With the help of extensive tests in single and two-family homes their operation and design could be improved incrementally. Additional information on the actual generation of fuel cells and the use in demonstration buildings is compiled in the new BINE-Projektinfo.

Peripheral areas often face poverty, crime, waste, pollution and decay. A new trend, however, considers suburbs the best places to develop green initiatives and energy efficiency interventions. Now a social housing building in Zaragoza, Spain, is piloting the regeneration of a suburb   Peripheral neighbourhoods are often spaces of poverty, unemployment and urban decay. But now many peripheral areas are becoming laboratories of innovation, hosting initiatives for a sustainable future.

Sonnenhäuser weisen einen Primärenergiebedarf von maximal 15 kWh/m²a für Heizung und Hilfsenergie. In den gut gedämmten Gebäuden deckt eine Solaranlage typischerweise zwischen 60 und 70 % des Wärmebedarfs. Der Rest wird meist über eine Biomasseheizung abgedeckt. Der geringe Primärenergiebedarf ist bei den Sonnenhäusers (auch SolarAktiv-Häuser genannt) mit Mehrkosten für die Gebäudehülle und Anlagentechnik verbunden. Ein neue Tool, das am Fraunhofer-Institut für Solare Energiesysteme (ISE) entwickelt wurde ermöglich nun die Berechnung der erforderlichen Mehrkosten.
