ZEMUSIC - Zero Energy Solutions for Multi-use Steel Intensive Commercial Buildings


Short description

The broad commercial objective of this project is the sustainable value creation in steel building technology by addressing the ways in which significant energy reductions can be made in the operation phase of multi-storey commercial buildings. This is achieved by a combination of energy conservation and energy generation through which energy is collected, stored, transformed and combined with renewable energy sources. The focus will be on systems where the building fabric and structure participates actively in the energy balance of the building. The innovative objective is to integrate mechanical and electrical systems (M&E) with new innovative structural systems, and by this, the building design can be optimized as one functional system. The project will address the technical development of integrated systems and will act as the focus for product development.
