Planning & design
When implementing effective efficiency measures, the actors involved are dependent on the data and results of reliable analysis and planning instruments. Numerous planning aids have therefore been developed in the past, for example to simplify the development of municipal energy concepts or as software tools for designing and implementing innovative technologies. Currently, the focus is on creating and testing planning tools that integrate Building Information Modelling (BIM) or are based on geographic information systems in the district planning field. Their use simultaneously promotes and requires continuity in planning, constructing and operating building projects.
