Workshop Energy Efficient Technologies for Building Envelopes, 25 – 27/11/2020

We are inviting you to a hybrid Workshop on Energy Efficient Technologies for Building Envelopes from November 25 – 27, 2020 in Dresden or online. Switch2Save project will be presented during the first and second day of the workshop.

According to the Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD), all newly planned buildings in the EU shall be “nearly zero-energy” buildings by December 2020. Therefore, long term renovation strategies for existing buildings are needed to ensure a low and zero-emission building stock all over Europe by 2050. Nanotechnology offers energy saving solutions for buildings such as smart windows, solar energy harvesting, active energy storage or super insulative elements and can therefore be an important part to achieve this mission.

The presentations in this technical workshop will focus on the latest developments in nanotechnology research and the most promising technologies for the energy efficient buildings of the future. Each day of the workshop sets a different emphasis:
Day 1 – Energy efficient technologies for building envelopes
Day 2 – Reliability, life time and characterization
Day 3 – Energy smart solutions in membrane architecture (German only)

On the event website you will find the tentative program as well as the registration form.

Due to unsecure situation, we are happy to offer an online participation. For those who prefer to finally meet people on-site again, we prepared a security concept to make sure that your participation is safe and to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The Event is supported by German National and EU wide large research networks FLEX-G, Follow-e2, Switch2Save and PowerSkin+, the European Commission and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement n°869929, project Switch2Save.
