The research project InDeWaG (Industrial Development of Fluid Flow Glazing Systems) has been funded for three-and-a-half years by the European Union within the framework of the program HORIZON 2020. The focus of this project is an insulating glazing unit filled up with a water-glycol fluid circulating within one of the IGU cavities. The glass units have been developed for both, the usage within façades and as interior separation walls. They are conceived to serve for both heating and cooling. The aim is to combine these units with other technologies in HVAC systems, such as Photovoltaic and high-efficiency heat exchangers leading to minimized total energy consumptions of buildings without restrictions of daylight autonomy.
Bollinger+Grohmann was responsible not only for the planning of the façade construction but also for the dynamic simulations for optimization and energy consumption as well as the development of a simulation tool.
