Call for Papers for International Bauhaus.SOLAR Congress 201121.02.2011 - (idw) Bauhaus-Universität Weimar
The discussion about the innovative, aesthetic influence of energy related components on architecture and urban planning is a focal point at the International Bauhaus.SOLAR Congress. Speakers may submit papers by 15th April.
There is a general consensus in society, politics and the economy that energy supplies will be notably powered by renewable energies in the future. On 4th February this year, the European Head of States invoked greater energy efficiency particularly in the building sector once again at the energy summit.
"Now it is a matter of taking action," calls Dr. Hubert Aulich, Chairman of the Thuringian network SolarInput, "because what we need for sustainable energy use especially in the building sector is largely available: we have the technology and the fundamental willingness in society!" To ensure that the implementation of solar construction will become ubiquitous, a rethinking among product developers and in architecture is necessary in particular. Prof. Dr. Gerd Zimmermann, Rector of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, stresses: "In aesthetical and functional terms, the potential of building integrated solar energy production is largely unexploited. We have to move away from simple applications. What we need are new building and urban concepts."
The Congress promotes interdisciplinary dialogue and calls on planners, architects, civil engineers, technicians, designers and users as well as representatives of the solar, real estate and financial industries to present ground-breaking concepts, projects and research papers. For the 4th International Bauhaus.SOLAR Congress 2011, papers and (research projects) about the following topics can be submitted until 15th April:
Architecture and solar structural elements
Decentralised energy supply and networks
Energy efficient construction and renovation
Real estate industry and life cycles (energy considerations)
Landscape architecture and energy facilities
Urban development and sociological change
Legal and economic considerations
The Congress is a project the SolarInput Association in cooperation with the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and the Thuringian Energy und GreenTech-Agency (ThEGA). From year to year, the Bauhaus.SOLAR Congress is gaining increasing prominence: the number of participants, exhibitors and the media echo has strongly increased over the past few years. This year, the two day event is expected to have around 400 international visitors.
