Empa is the leading house of the SCCER FEEB&D. In close collaboration with ETHZ-BP Empa focuses on retrofitting buildings by integration of new technologies and materials and in analysis and design of sustainable energy conversion, storage, distribution and management at neighbourhood scale, by model development for renewable energy system components, energy grids, and optimization methods, and by consolidating them in a co-simulation platform.

As the leading European research group in the area of constrained predictive control, ETH-IfA brings significant control technology experience to the development of the next generation of building control systems.
As an interdisciplinary team of architects, engineers and computer scientists, ETHZ-SuAT contributes strong experience in computer modelling, simulation and optimization of integrated building systems combining both aspects of technology with real-world architectural / urban design.
ETHZ-SusTec contributes to the SCCER with its understanding of the interrelationship between sustainable technologies, corporate strategies and energy & innovations policy. This expertise supports the assessment of the technological learning potential and economic performance of building technologies, as well as the evaluation of policy implications.
Research at the EPFL Solar Energy and Building Physics Laboratory (EPFL-LESO) focuses on energy efficiency and the implementation of renewable energies in buildings and cities.
Hochschule Luzern – Technik und Architektur
Hochschule Luzern focusses on the energy efficiency of buildings and industrial plants in the context of the surrounding system. It integrates the specific competences in energy research on the campus of the mechanical engineers (components related), the building technology engineers (building related) and the architects (neighbourhood related).
Université de Genève
UNIGE focuses on (1) detailed understanding of the structure and characteristics of the actual energy demand of the building stock; (2) analysis of the performance gap between actual and design energy use in building retrofit and (3) assessment of real total cost of diverse energy efficiency solutions (including implementation, and maintenance), as well as analysis of financing schemes.
