Buildings in the energy plus standard produce more energy throughout the year than they consume. The energy balance is calculated on the bases of the Germany standard EnEV / DIN 18599 which considers the energy demand for heating, domestic hot water, ventilation, cooling and lighting. The energyPLUS standard considers additionally the user specific energy demand. The holistic design approach of the energyPLUS standard includes:

  • Reduction of heating demand
  • Intelligent use of electricity in buildings through intelligent energy management systems and energy  storages
  • Self-use of electricity generated by renewable energy sources on site

EnergyPLUS buildings as decentralized power plants will play major role in the future energy supply of countries. In the frame work of research and development projects STZ-EGS has already designed and implemented several residential buildings and schools as energyPLUS buildings.
