Title: Plus Energy Exhibition Building in Selmer Köstendorf
The approach to planning was the establishment of some 300 m2 of exhibition building as a "House of the Future" by continuing with our concept "house without heating" with power generation using solar energy and rainwater harvesting.
This was done - by avoiding the use of a heat generator for heating and hot water - both through the application of solar technology, more efficient energy use by ventilation with heat recovery and brine Erdregister for preheating of air and natural cooling, photovoltaics and rainwater storage as well as passive house standard run under the predominant use of wood and other building materials biologically correct at high degree of prefabrication.
The result is an affordable, comfortable building that does not cause energy costs, emits no CO2 and produces more energy than it consumes. This positive energy exhibition building already meets the state of the EU Buildings Directive 2020th
