Munich, October 12th – Today, several Bavarian companies and institutions – among them carbuilder BMW, the Technical University of Munich (TUM), and the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics (IBP) – presented the results of a joint project in energy self-sufficiency.
Having built a house with energy performance in mind, the project partners monitored its performance over the course of 18 months real-life use. Today, they presented groundbreaking results: The house did not only allow a family household of four to live without restrictions, it also provided enough energy to fuel an electric car almost entirely without paying additional electricity bills – the only exception being winter time.
This feat is enabled by a unique union of thermal and electrical storage systems, precisely chosen building materials and innovative design. All these components are rooted in the strengths of the Bavarian partners involved:
