KlimaEngineering for buildings aims to achieve the highest comfort for users with the lowest possible energy consumption. Transsolar is an energy technology company that started in Stuttgart in 1992 and is now active worldwide. It works toward this goal by creating and testing new climate and energy concepts. In close cooperation with customers, architects, building technicians and other engineers, holistic solutions are sought in which local boundary conditions, the shape of the building, the materials used and the supply systems interact synergistically. So, Transsolar is interested in more than just ensuring that a building’s shell has the best thermal performance possible. In an integrated design process, assumptions and norms are put to the test, from the shape of the building to the best way to arrange the rooms to the requirements for the indoor climate.
