SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAMME

The Summer School in Energy Efficiency in Buildings focusses on energy efficiency in buildings, including legal, technical and administrative support mechanisms needed to increase the energy efficiency of buildings. The aim is to bring together representatives from Turkey and Germany to combine architectural and engineering solutions, covering various topics:

Resource-conserving design of buildings,
energy-efficient approaches in the construction sector,
in building technologies and mechanical systems and
services engineering.
