Aluminium und Glas in der Gebäudehülle – Möglichkeiten zur energieeffizienten Gestaltung

C. Radlbeck, M. Schlinz

Abstract: In order to explore the influence of design measures on the consumption of energy of buildings, the Bavarian Government initiated the BayFORRESTresearch project “Material Flows of Buildings”. The objective was to evaluate respective data and tools and thus to realize efficient structures in practice. In this paper the building materials aluminium and glass are investigated. To this purpose the energy consumption of transparent façades is calculated by applying once Life-Cycle.-Analysis and second the German energy regulations (EnEV). The results underline the importance of evaluating the whole life-cycle of a structure. Based on the results, concrete measures can be derived, significantly improving the energy balance of aluminium-glassapplications.
