The building and energy management at universities essentially includes the establishment and maintenance of infrastructures for performing the core tasks of "teaching and research". The complexity of the building systems creates living and working spaces that guarantee the comfort, health and satisfaction of the users and thus make an important contribution to cooperation. In particular, ecological, economic and social aspects are part of sustainable building management, which are equally considered in order to be able to counter problems such as resource scarcity and climate change. Due to the intensive use of material and monetary resources, the considerable energy and material flows during operation and the resulting environmental impact, it is very important to deal with the issues of sustainability in building and energy management at our university.

Our goals:

  • Cost optimization

  • Achieving the best possible quality

  • Securing the core tasks of our university (teaching and research)

  • Operational safety through sustainable maintenance and management

  • Establishment of an energy management system

  • Inclusion of sustainability aspects in planning and implementation

  • “Green Buildings” - building certification

  • Reducing resource consumption on campus

  • Use of renewable energies on campus

Did you know that…

  • In Germany approx. 30% of the greenhouse gas emissions and approx. 40% of the demand for primary resources and energy can be assigned to the building sector?

  • The building-related expenses represent the second highest cost factor of an administrative budget?

  • So does the sustainability performance of buildings and energy systems have by far the greatest potential for saving resources?
