Buildings and Public Space
From intelligent building management to district concepts for the smart city of the future
Through its application-oriented research in the fields of building and public space, the FZI makes an important contribution to the development and testing of the necessary
technological infrastructure for the energy transition, which cannot succeed without sustainable networking
of infrastructures in rural and urban areas. If security of supply and stability are maintained in the process, acceptance in the economy and society for this complex transformation process is guaranteed.
To this end, the FZI also tests modern energy, heat, mobility, and communication components, given that, for example, the transition to sustainable neighborhood concepts requires the interconnected consideration of a variety of individual elements.
Neighborhood concepts are also an example of the necessary building blocks for a sustainable and innovative smart city of the future.
The FZI researches potentials for intelligent, energy-efficient building management that connects infrastructure components and can react to various signals and conditions.
The FZI also works on the practical development and evaluation of system architectures and infrastructural components for capturing and aggregating information about the current electrical and thermal energy demand in buildings, thereby providing suppliers with a reliable basis for energy production decision-making.
