Solar Energy / Lighting Lab & Solar House

Research activities

Our main research focus is the integration of solar energy systems into buildings to generate electricity, useful heat and for daylighting.

A key element of our approach is that solar technologies are integrated in an optimal manner with energy efficiency measures, with the building envelope and with HVAC systems, so the potential energy savings are even higher than separately applying the two approaches and reductions in total cost may be realized.
