Topic: Advanced Tools for Planning and Management of Climate Neutral Buildings
Guest lecture by Carlos Ochoa, Building Energy Senior Researcher at the International Energy Research Centre (IERC) at Tyndall National Institute, Ireland (online)
Response 1: Steffen Robbi, CEO of Digital Findet Stadt GmbH
Response 2: Birgit Jandl, CEO of Lendmark GmbH
Chair: Alexander Passer, Professor at the Institute of Technology and Testing of Construction Materials at TU Graz
Host: Michael Monsberger, Professor at the Institute of Building Physics, Services, and Construction at TU Graz
Much care is needed to design, construct, and renovate in a climate neutral way ensuring circular economy according to EU Climate laws. Even more so if what is at stake is the overall quality of the building and the comfort and well-being of the people who use it. Building managers and architects are looking for improved building management systems embracing a life-cycle approach, as well as improved tools for energy management, environmental performance, renovation optimization, and investment planning. The lecture will discuss how to break down climate targets to the building level by reducing grey and operational emissions and which role advanced tools such as Digital Twins and advanced BIM systems can play. The main lecture is followed by a response which will shed light on the effects of digitalization on building value chains, especially SMEs. The second response will present the City of Graz ‘lendmark’ which is the first EU taxonomy conform building in the City of Graz.
Further information will be provided in due course.
Organised by ESEIA in cooperation with TU Graz Forum Technology and Society, the Austrian Federation of Industries Styria, and the Austrian Universities of Technology (TU Austria), the lecture is part of the hybrid series Sustainable Energy Innovation Systems for Climate Neutrality.
