The idea and purpose of the local visit:
Group visit to Małopolska Laboratory of Energy Efficient Building (located in the city center at the Krakow University of Technology). Małopolska Laboratory of Energy Efficient Building is a unique 1: 1 research laboratory. In an energyefficient building, independent climate zones are set up and the processes are fully automated and monitored by almost 3.000 people. Specialized sensors. The infrastructure of the MLBE building itself as a research object and its specialized measuring equipment allow to conduct interdisciplinary research in the field of widely understood energy-saving construction.
Hosting entity: Małopolska Laboratory of Energy Efficient Building hosted by Krakow University of Technology
Host leader: Marcin Furtak – director of the Malopolska’s Laboratory of Energy-Efficient Building.
