Key points of the municipal heat transition
The heat transition is of particular importance for achieving climate neutrality. The project aims to facilitate targeted action by providing clarity on solution strategies.
The 8th international conference on ICT and sustainability is organized by the University of Plovdiv (Bulgaria). Borderstep presents a paper describing the methods of the Bitkom Building Study.
Development of diffusion and communication strategies for intelligent building technologies
Intelligent building technologies can play an important role in mitigating greenhouse gases in the building sector.
Solar heat pump – heating and cooling with the help of the sun
The project aims to promote understanding of the need for rapid action against climate change and to draw attention to the possibilities of using heat pumps.
Bitkom Survey on the German Building Sector
The Bitkom Building Survey analyzes how digital technologies - e.g. building automation - can contribute to reducing emissions in the building sector.
A showcase for smart energy from the north-east of Germany
More than 50 partners will be working together on the northeast German model region for smart energy, as part of the collaborative WindNODE project.
Adaptive facade collectors for solar architecture
The ArKol research project was developing novel thermal solar collectors for use in building facades. Borderstep supports the project consortium on behalf of Fraunhofer ISE.
ProSHAPE developed a control approach and business models that enable decentralized energy management in quarters.
Data Centre Heat Exchange with AI-Technologies (DC-HEAT)
With the support of artificial intelligence, it should be possible in future to plan and operate data centres in the Frankfurt area in such a way that negative effects on the environment are reduced.
Demonstration of the benefit of solar thermal blinds (DESTINI)
With DESTINI, the solar thermal blind is being implemented for the first time in the largest European innovation quarter near Frankfurt a.M. The Borderstep Institute is supporting the project.
Waste heat recovery from compact data centres (HotFlAd)
The overall objective of the project is to develop and demonstrate an energy-efficient, standardised data center with liquid-cooled servers in which the waste heat is converted into cold.
