SCCER Future Energy Efficient Buildings and Districts

Intense science-industry collaboration for energy transition in the built environment

Much research at EPFL LESO-PB takes place within the collaborative environment of the Innosuisse sponsored Swiss Competence Centre for Energy Research “Future Energy Efficient Buildings and Districts” (SCCER FEEB&D).

Videos first presented at CISBAT 2019 show examples of science and industry collaboration in four highly relevant FEEB&D topics.

Full renewable energy potential in Switzerland

Does Switzerland have the potential to become carbon neutral thanks to renewably energy?

In this video, Science meets Public Services to implement the latest research aiming to use Switzerland’s full renewable energy potential as rising temperatures are changing the energy use and comfort of buildings.

Energy hub system control

Grid integration of diverse renewable energy plants and multiple providers pose new challenges in energy system design. One of the hot topics today, energy hubs have great potential to optimize the use of renewables. In this video, Science meets Industry to implement the latest research in this field in the NEST pilot building at Empa in Dübendorf, Switzerland

Energy performance gap

Science and industry collaborate with the objective of matching calculated and effective performance in high energy performance buildings, in Geneva, Switzerland.

Circular economy

Building materials are recycled in newly developed procedures as science and industry are working together towards a circular economy in Switzerland.
