Efficient Buildings in Future Grids

With the further expansion of decentralised generation, which is also propagated by the Energy Saving Regulation (EnEV), and new high-performance electricity consumers such as heat pumps and charging stations for electric vehicles, the grid load will reach its capacity limits in many places. On some days there will be a very large difference between generation and load from time to time, and there will be a lack of comprehensive storage technologies to compensate peak loads locally. Therefore, the team "Energy-efficient buildings in the future power grid" is researching micro grids of various sizes and peak load management for buildings to avert such grid problems.
