Visit us at the Special Show “Fraunhofer CityLaboratory” at the BAU 2017!


At the “Fraunhofer CityLaboratory” at the BAU 2017, the Fraunhofer Building Alliance will be presenting both innovative and sustainable solutions from building research (Hall C2, Booth 538). Four themes are highlighted at the special show: Digital Design, Construction and Management, Intelligent Façades, Safety in Building, and Resource-Efficiency and Energy Management.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE, as a member of the Fraunhofer Building Alliance, will be displaying exhibits at the show. Come by and learn more about our research on the following themes:

Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes: Development of Architecturally Sophisticated Façade Collector with Heat Pipes (Arkol Project)

Energy-Efficient Building Operation: The Energy Monitoring Platform MONDAS Identifies Energy-Saving Potential

Solar Collectors from Ultra-High Performance Concrete Combine Energy Efficiency and Aesthetics (TABSOLAR project)

The full press releases of our exhibits and projects are available here.


At the “Forum B0: From Vision to Reality,” Fraunhofer ISE researchers will be presenting talks on the followings subjects at the specified times:

“Networking Buildings and Neighborhoods,” Thursday, 19 January 2017, 13:00

Simon Häringer: “Solar Thermal Building Envelopes: Innovations for Affordable Zero and Plus Energy Buildings”

“Energy-Efficient Building and Intelligent Facades,” Saturday, 21 January 2017, 13:30
