Title: New home for vocational school in Erding as passive house

A new school building with a maximum primary energy requirement of 70 kWh/m²/a is to be built in the small Bavarian city of Erding. The primary goals are energy efficiency and long-range conservation of resources. Therefore plans call for a building meeting the German passive house standard, a passive solar system, optimization of daylight through extensive window area, geothermal energy for heating and ambient cold for cooling, as well as primary air ventilation. After completion of the project in December 2010, a monitoring process will accompany the building in real-time operation and regulate it.
