Overview of the research project Clean-Tech-Campus

Due to its steady growth, the TUM Campus Garching offers extensive urbanistic and energetic development potentials. It is thus well suited for the implementation of a technological example project for highly complex mixed use areas with research-, business- and residential buildings.   The aim of the project is the development of a sustainable and innovative energy concept which enables the optimized integration of current and future buildings into an efficient and increasingly renewable energy supply and production structure. Key for this venture is a holistic perspective encompassing electricity, heat and cooling supply as well as an intelligent building- and demand management. This perspective helps identifying potentially new synergies and technology options for future high-tech-campuses. The relevant methods and tools are developed in the course of the project. The developed technologies and ideas for future oriented acting are then brought to life in the form of a Living Lab for students and scientists.
