Improving energy efficiency and living comfort in the future

Concrete basements – Thermally activated and managed

The need for improving energy efficiency of buildings and the request of building owners for the highest possible comfort require using ­energy in a resource-conserving way as well as concepts for sophisticated building services. Active thermal mass management combined with an efficient construction method allows heating and cooling with the aid of ambient heat.

In this research project, the basement with semi-precast concrete elements being in contact with the ground serves, on the one hand, as short-term storage and, on the other hand, as heat exchanger interacting with the ground....
