Running Projects


The research work of E3D focuses on current problems and issues in the field of energy-efficient construction and can be assigned to the four research groups of the institute. Due to this broad research spectrum, the focus and the applied methods vary. Among others, building simulations and modeling, IT-based methods, test rigs as well as test person studies are used. More information about the current projects can be found here.
