The SCCER Future Energy Efficient Buildings & Districts (FEEB&D) develops new materials, components, systems and concepts which will enable the reduction of the energy demand of the Swiss building stock by a factor of five during the next decades. FEEB&D is focusing on high performance insulation materials, integra- tion of renewable energies in buildings, efficient operation of buildings and their integration into local multi- energy grids. To complete the holistic approach, socio-economic issues related to the implementation of these new concepts in practice are addressed as well. To reach these ambitious goals, the major players from academia and industry have teamed up in FEEB&D. This coordinated effort will support the new Federal Energy Policy, strengthen the Swiss research scene and foster the competitiveness of Swiss industry.
