“Active House” and “Building Simply” – The latest state of Energy Efficiency
Building Technologies from Germany
Simple, low-tech approaches in buildings are often underestimated in light of the continually developing high-tech technologies. Highly sophisticated building technologies may even have a negative effect on the total balance of energy generation, maintenance costs and durability. Therefore, combinations of high and low-tech solutions could deliver comfort effectively without increasing energy costs. This presentation introduces two different strategies for energy efficient buildings used in Germany: the “Active House” and “Building Simply”.

New Zealand Architecture and Renewable Energy: innovation and
architectural-urban integration of solar technologies
In the future, the electrification of industry and electric vehicle uptake are expected to improve the share of renewable energy in total energy consumption and improve energy intensity in areas of the Pacific Rim, like New Zealand. Modifications to urban energy landscapes are likely to happen and an increase of solar installations is highly probable. This presentation discusses the importance of architectural and urban integration of renewable technologies, their prospect of durability and life cycle in the New Zealand context, in light of United Nations SGDs 7 and 11.
