Dr.-Ing. Manuel Lämmle

Project manager, Building Systems Technology, Division Energy Technologies and Systems

Research focus

  • Energy efficient heat and power supply concepts for buildings and districts
  • Energy management and optimisation for smart energy systems with heat pumps, cogeneration units, PV and solar thermal
  • Demonstration and optimisation of heat pump systems in multi-family homes
  • Development of novel concepts for PVT collectors, e.g. highly-efficient glazed PVT collectors with low-emissivity coatings, and PVT systems, e.g. PVT heat pump systems
