Energy Efficiency and Comfort of Living in Prefab Buildings (EnWoPla)

In cooperation with the housing cooperative “WbG Erfurt eG”, residents, and further participants, the ISP established a model apartment to consult and motivate residents about energy efficient housing as part of the earlier research project “Energy Efficiency and Housing Industry” (EnWoKom).

The project “Energy Efficiency and Comfort of Living in Prefab Buildings” (EnWoPla) expands this approach by making the model apartment movable and by widening the consulting methods regarding energy efficient behaviour of residents. Between August 2016 and December 2017, the apartment, supported by IKEA Foundation, was put up in the neighbourhood “Berliner Platz” in the city of Erfurt.

The need for this research to be advanced lies primarily in linking energy saving with high living comfort, especially in prefabricated buildings. The most important research questions are:

•    How can energy efficiency and high living comfort be linked in a holistic concept by implementing a model apartment as a "living exhibition"?

•    How can consulting services aimed at specific target groups (e.g. lifestyle-intrinsic), contribute to this concept?

EnWoPla aims to provide help for the residents to develop their own ideas on how to motivate themselves and their neighbourhood to achieve a more energy efficient lifestyle. To keep consulting services tied to the field as far as possible, the project provides a variety of activities and measures for the tenants to actively contribute to. This aims at achieving a sustainable change of behaviour without losing or reducing living comfort. The results of EnWoPla are evaluated against the background of energy transition in the housing sector. Furthermore, this involves the transferability of the "living exhibition" approach.
