Different aspects of energy are considered in the context of building design and building use in the form of a series of lectures. The lectures are offered by the FB13 – Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Sciences in cooperation with the FB15 – Department of Architecture.

Local and global boundary conditions in cities are transforming as a result of climate change and transition towards zero-carbon energy supply. This is reflected in the way cities, neighborhoods and buildings are planned, built, used and recycled. The module will provide an updated insight in climatic and energy aspects for architecture and engineering. Lecturers include experts from the field of urban development, architecture, sustainability research, building construction, regenerative energy technology and environmental process analysis.

The module focuses on building planning, design, use and end-of-life, starting with a view to urban and district planning offered by the Department of Architecture. Both relevant environmental and energy-specific functional features as well as their technical implementation are explained, whereby specific methods are omitted and referenced to corresponding extended courses and modules. In this context, Prof. Jens Schneider presents the topic of “Building energy use” and Prof. Ulrich Knaack presents the topic “Embodied energy”. The Institute IWAR presents aspects of “Life Cycle Assessment” and “Building certification”, finally, the topic of “Sustainability” will integrate environmental and social influences in the whole course concept.
