Key application areas for
renewable energies in buildings
Germany has an established tradition of energy saving that stretches back at least as far as the oil crises of the
1970s. Since then, German regulations have been placing increasingly stringent demands on heating insulation and
Energy consumption in buildings currently accounts for over 40 percent of all energy consumed in Europe. With new
technologies the energy efficiency of European building stock can be increased by 50 percent.
Potential savings from modern
The potential amount of energy to be saved in terms of lighting is colossal. Various measures can significantly
reduce the energy consumption both when planning and when modernising a building.
Solar cooling: In addition to the solar energy that can be used to heat water and support room heating, any excess
energy generated during the summer months can be used to cool a building. This approach works well because a building´s
cooling requirement increases in tandem with the amount of solar energy that can be generated, which means that the
greatest cooling effects can be achieved when power are most needed.
