We are dedicated to the research and development of materials and technologies with the aim of minimizing the impact of building construction and operation on the environment while simultaneously achieving a high-quality indoor environment.
We monitor the energy efficiency of buildings throughout their entire life cycle. We propose solutions that use renewable or recycled materials to minimize the energy consumption of building construction and operation. We are researching new technologies in the field of renewable energy sources (heat, cold and electricity). We test the developed elements in our laboratories and deploy them in pilot plants to verify their effectiveness, functionality and durability.
For analyzes of the energy behavior of buildings, we use dynamic models and complex simulations that allow us to describe in detail the interaction of the building and an advanced energy system based on innovative elements. We deal with the integration of energy technologies into the construction of buildings for the purpose of advantageous prefabrication for production.
In recent years, the focus of our research work has increasingly shifted to energy solutions for entire sets of buildings and their energy interconnection (community energy, smart grids, centralized 4th generation heat supply) to achieve carbon-neutral or energy-plus neighborhoods.

In March 2022, the organizers of the General World Exhibition EXPO in Dubai awarded the Czech Republic the award for "Best Innovation" for the SAWER technology. The Czech Pavilion received the UAE Innovations Award from The Center for Government Innovation of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, that is, the ruler of Dubai and the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates.
SAWER technology ranked second among the exhibits of 192 nations. She received the award from the expert committee of the prestigious American magazine EXHIBITOR, which is dedicated to international fairs and exhibitions.Show more

Envilop is a proposal for a solution for a lightweight panel-type perimeter skin based on wood. The light envelope was designed as part of the Intelligent Buildings project (CZ.1.05/3.1.00/13.0283) from the Operational Program Research and Development for Innovations of the Ministry of Education and Culture, which is financed by the EU and the state budget of the Czech Republic.Show more
