Heinrich Huber (*1957) is lecturer in building technology and leads since August 2015 the HVAC testing laboratory at the Centre for Integral Building Technology (ZIG) of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts - Engineering and Architecture in Horw. His expertise is in energy-efficient building technology. He is one of Switzerland's leading professionals in the field of residential ventilation. He has published books and several articles on this topic.
Heinrich Huber is deeply involved in standardization work. Particularly worth mentioning are:
- Convenor of CEN TC 110/WG 6 Revision EN 308
- Convenor of the Committee SIA 384 heating systems
- Member of the Committee SIA 382 ventilation systems and the working group residential ventilation
- Member of the Committee for Building and Energy (KGE)
- Swiss expert in CEN TC 156 / WG 2 Residential Ventilation
Subsequent to his bachelor degree in mechanical engineering Heinrich Huber worked for a heat pump manufacturer. After a postgraduate course Energy Efficiency and an additional study as HVAC engineer he joined the engineering company Dr. Eicher + Pauli AG, where he worked in the field of energy concepts and heating, esp. cogeneration systems. In this time he was deeply involved in the design and monitoring of mechanical ventilation systems with heat recovery in early Swiss low-energy multifamily houses.
In 1997 he moved to the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts - Engineering and Architecture, where he worked as scientific staff and from 2002 as a senior assistant in the HVAC testing laboratory.
Between 2006 and 2015 Heinrich Huber has worked in the Institute of Energy in Building at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland in Muttenz. An important mandate was the Minergie Building Agency (leading Swiss standard for low-energy houses), which he headed from 2013 to his departure. In addition, he was lecturer in the further education of engineers and architects, where he led courses of the CAS Minergie, taught also in other CAS and mentored master theses (MAS). In the bachelor education he has been involved in development the bachelor study Energy and Environmental Technology. In this course, he led the specialisation Energy in Buildings, taught in this field and mentored semester and bachelor theses. In 2011 the professorship of technologies of energy-efficient construction was conferred.
