        Buildings and the local grid are a key element in the energy transition. This requires:

        • performance prediction & evaluation
        • heat, air and moisture transport
        • HVAC systems
        • micro-grids incl. test lab
        • power quality of low & medium voltage grids
        • solar concentrators & smart windows

        … and as such we try to assist in providing the technology for the smart grids and cities of the future.
