Episode 13 of the blog series "heat pumps in existing buildings" on the current discussion on energy independence.
E for Energy Utilization
Efficient energy utilization is a primary objective of the energy system transformation. On the way to a sustainable energy supply, this means not only efficient renewable energy conversion but also increasing the efficiency of existing system components. The focus here is on the energy consumption in buildings, since this accounts for about 40 percent of the final energy consumption in Germany.
Fraunhofer ISE develops technologies and components for efficient building envelopes and for the heating and cooling supply in buildings, including material development for heat transformation. We also focus on thermal storage and operation management and develop complete energy concepts for buildings.

The claim that PV modules require more energy for their production than they can ever generate has been disproved by science a while ago. With energy payback times (EPBT) of a few months or years depending on...
