University of Innsbruck
The Unit of Energy Efficient Building is one of the six units of the Department of Structural Engineering and Material Sciences (Project and Construction Management, Timber Engineering, Concrete Structures and Bridge Design, Material Technology, Steel Construction and Mixed Building Technology) at the University of Innsbruck. Its core business activities include teaching at the university level as well as delivering vocational education and training on energy efficiency and sustainability. Research and development activities are focused on energy efficiency in new construction (nZEB/Passivhaus) and refurbishing (deep retrofit; enerPHit).
Services offered by the Unit of Energy Efficient Building are lab measurements and testing (thermal and hygrothermal, visual/daylight performance of materials and building components), outdoor testing (façade testing under real and artificial outdoor conditions; PASSYS test cells), monitoring (real scale building performance measurement and evaluation for new and refurbished buildings), building simulation ([hygro-]thermal (HAM) simulation, day-/artificial light, building services [HVAC simulation], co-simulation, and hardware in the loop).
Our MeZeroe vision
Being part of the international MEZeroE consortium is a great opportunity for the University of Innsbruck to support the building industry as it works toward making nZEB the European universal standard.
