Logo field test project WP Monitor WP:Monitor
Homepage of the German field test project called "WP:Monitor". As continuation of the field test HP-Efficiency in Germany the project HP:Monitor has started in 2009 and will be continued until 2013. About 100 further heat pumps of the involved 12 manufacturers and 1 utility are monitored for at least 30 month to include at least two full heating and summer periods.

Logo field test WP replacement for boiler WP im Gebäudebestand
Homepage of the German field test project called "WP im Gebäudebestand", which investigates heat pumps as retrofit for boilers in existing buildings with high flow temperature requirements for the space heating emission system. The project is accomplished in co-operation with the German utilty E.ON. Results will be reported to the IEA HPP Annex 32.
The Website contains information on the project, links to the involved branch companies of E.ON and the possibility to visualise measurement data of three systems online.

Logo Passive House Institute Passive House Institute
The Passive House Institute (PHI) is an independent research institute under the auspices of Dr. Wolfgang Feist with an interdisciplinary team of presently 23 employees.
Main tasks are in research, development in the field on highly-efficient energy use in buildings.
The German Passive house standards and construction concepts for Passive Houses originate of the PHI.
The website gives information on the activities of the PHI and on German Passive houses at

Logo ENergieOptimiertesBauen Research initiative EnOB
The objectives are ambitious: in the key research area "Energy-Optimised Construction" (EnOB), there is a resolve to reduce the primary energy requirement of new buildings to half of that entailed by current technology. At the same time, "zero energy buildings" are already being worked towards within these projects. And due to the fact that the greatest potential for energy savings resides in buildings' structural quality, there is a research focus on refurbishment. Alongside building concepts and energy concepts for new buildings and refurbishments, new materials, technologies and systems for construction engineering and for buildings' technical equipment are also being developed and tested in real operating conditions. Learn more about the projects, the methods, about who can participate, and about the makers and doers behind this research initiative.

Logo BINE Information Service BINE Information Service
BINE Information Service putting energy research into practice
The BINE Information Service reports on energy research topics, such as new materials, systems and components, as well as innovative concepts and methods. The knowledge gained is incorporated into the implementation of new technologies in practice, because first-rate information provides a basis for pioneering decisions, whether in the planning of energy-optimised buildings, increasing the efficiency of industrial processes, or integrating renewable energy sources into existing systems.

Logo German Green Building Council German Green Building council (DGNB)
The task of the German Sustainable Building Council is to point out and advance paths and solutions for sustainable building. This includes the planning of buildings, but also their construction and operation. The DGNB considers itself to be the central German organization for exchange of knowledge, professional training, and for a raising public awareness for this future-oriented part of the building sector.
The focus of the DGNB is on awarding the certification for sustainable building. The first time the Sustainable Building Certification was awarded was at the BAU 2009 in Munich. Initially, it was awarded for the system variation New Construction Office and Administration, Version 2008.
